It's a good idea to have your 1983 Peugeot 505 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 ask for a free brake check at any time.

If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Peugeot 505 better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Generally speaking, automakers like Peugeot suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

How often should you change your 1983 Peugeot 505’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 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 505 right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Peugeot 505 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your 505, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Peugeot’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Peugeot 505. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal.

What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet.
