Getting your 1986 D21’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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 a tire repair or 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, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Nissan D21 like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Vehicle manufacturers like Nissan generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes checking the parking brake, too. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1986 Nissan D21 brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 1986 Nissan D21 brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 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. 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 D21. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Nissan D21s that comes with 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 Nissan's standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Nissan D21. 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 stop it, then it's scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their 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 this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Get your 1986 Nissan D21 brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
