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.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Nissan Altima better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance!

When should you change the brake pads on your 2017 Nissan Altima? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Altima. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Nissan Altima brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Nissan's standards.
