It’s best to get a brake check before your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S shows signs of brake troubles. 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 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. 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, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S best. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. In general, manufacturers like Mercedes-Benz advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes checking the parking brake, too. 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 technicians will inspect your 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often should you change your 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your AMG GT S right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your AMG GT S, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Mercedes-Benz’s standards.
Your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, 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, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
