Getting your 1996 Maxima’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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. 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 near your tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Nissan Maxima best. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Vehicle manufacturers like Nissan generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear 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. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 1996 Nissan Maxima brakes. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 1996 Nissan Maxima’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Maxima right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Nissan Maximas that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Maxima, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Nissan’s specs.
Your Nissan Maxima engine may be strong and reliable. 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’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! 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 instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 1996 Nissan Maxima brake repairs.
