It’s best to get a brake check before your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL shows signs of brake troubles. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Mercedes-Benz, like an oil change. 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, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL better than anyone else. 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 removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

How often do 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL 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. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your 560SEL right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Mercedes-Benz 560SELs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 560SEL, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Mercedes-Benz’s standards.
Your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL may be powered by a strong engine. One that’s strong enough to take you into high mileage territory. [content-1-text-4-2] One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. 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. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Get your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
