Brake problems include unusual noises, 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 Navigator like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Lincoln advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

When should you change the brake pads on your 1998 Lincoln Navigator? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Navigator. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Lincoln Navigator brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Navigator, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Lincoln’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Lincoln Navigator. 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. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Get your 1998 Lincoln Navigator brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
