It’s best to get a brake check before your Lincoln Continental shows signs of brake troubles. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, like a battery replacement. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Lincoln Continental better than anyone else. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Vehicle manufacturers like Lincoln generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2002 Lincoln Continental brakes. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often should you change your 2002 Lincoln Continental’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Continental. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Lincoln Continental brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Continental, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Lincoln’s standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Lincoln Continental. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2002 Lincoln Continental. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
