It's a good idea to have your 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. 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 check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Oldsmobile, like an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.

You know your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Generally speaking, automakers like Oldsmobile suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

How often should you change your 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 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. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Custom Cruiser. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Custom Cruiser, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Oldsmobile’s specs.
Your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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 brake, it might as well be 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.
