It's a good idea to have your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SE brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. 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. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Mercedes-Benz 300SE better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Mercedes-Benz generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection.

Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
When should you change the brake pads on your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SE? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, 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 300SE. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Mercedes-Benz 300SE brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your 300SE, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Mercedes-Benz’s specs.
Your Mercedes-Benz 300SE engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! 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 example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components.
