It's a good idea to have your 1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette 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 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.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Oldsmobile Silhouette best. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Oldsmobile suggest 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. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our technicians will inspect your 1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Silhouette. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Oldsmobile Silhouette 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 Silhouette, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Oldsmobile’s standards.
Your Oldsmobile Silhouette may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. 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 is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
