That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems.

You know your Nissan Pathfinder 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 disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1996 Nissan Pathfinder brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often should you change your 1996 Nissan Pathfinder’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. 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 interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Pathfinder 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 Pathfinders that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Pathfinder, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Nissan’s standards.
Your Nissan Pathfinder may be powered by a strong engine. 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, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. 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. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1996 Nissan Pathfinder.
