Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Pontiac Bonneville better than anyone else. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Generally speaking, automakers like Pontiac suggest that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit 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 expert technicians are happy to examine your 1986 Pontiac Bonneville brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 1986 Pontiac Bonneville’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads 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 Bonneville. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Pontiac Bonnevilles that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Bonneville, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Pontiac’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Pontiac Bonneville. 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. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1986 Pontiac Bonneville. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
