It’s best to get a brake check before your Pontiac 6000 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 check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Pontiac, like an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
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 Pontiac 6000 best. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Vehicle manufacturers like Pontiac generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes checking the parking brake, too. 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 1983 Pontiac 6000 brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 1983 Pontiac 6000’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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your 6000 right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Pontiac 6000s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Pontiac's standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Pontiac 6000. 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. 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. 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, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 1983 Pontiac 6000 brake repairs. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
