How Often Do Your Mercury Cougar Brakes Need Service

It's a good idea to have your 1986 Mercury  Cougar brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. 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 inspection at any time or during another service, 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 burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Mercury Cougar better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Vehicle manufacturers like Mercury generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. 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. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your  1986 Mercury Cougar brakes. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.

Brake Pad Replacement for Your Mercury Cougar

When should you change the brake pads on your 1986 Mercury Cougar? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may 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 Cougar 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 Mercury Cougars that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Cougar, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Mercury’s specs.

Get Your Mercury Cougar Brakes Fixed

Your Mercury Cougar 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, 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 example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Get your 1986 Mercury Cougar brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
