It’s best to get a brake check before your Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme shows signs of brake troubles. 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.

How often should you change your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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. 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 Cutlass Supreme 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. Thankfully, when you get Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
