It’s best to get a brake check before your Lincoln MKZ shows signs of brake troubles. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Lincoln, like a battery replacement. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Lincoln MKZ better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! In general, manufacturers like Lincoln advise that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 2009 Lincoln MKZ brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 2009 Lincoln MKZ brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 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 MKZ. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Lincoln MKZs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your MKZ, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Lincoln’s standards.
Your Lincoln MKZ engine may be strong and reliable. 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. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Get your 2009 Lincoln MKZ brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Our brake repair services include pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
