It’s best to get a brake check before your Nissan Frontier shows signs of brake troubles. 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 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.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Nissan Frontier 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. Generally speaking, automakers like Nissan suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2001 Nissan Frontier brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 2001 Nissan Frontier’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Frontier. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Nissan Frontier 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 Frontier, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Nissan’s standards.
