It's a good idea to have your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. 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 inspection at any time or during another service, like a battery replacement. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the 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 500SL best. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Mercedes-Benz suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes inspecting the parking 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. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our technicians will inspect your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often do 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your 500SL. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Mercedes-Benz 500SL brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Mercedes-Benz's standards.
Your Mercedes-Benz 500SL 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! 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. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
