You know your Pontiac Bonneville best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Generally speaking, automakers like Pontiac suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

When should you change the brake pads on your 1987 Pontiac Bonneville? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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 timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Bonneville. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Pontiac Bonneville brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. 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 stop it, then it's scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, 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 1987 Pontiac Bonneville brake repairs.
