It's a good idea to have your 1988 Pontiac Grand Am brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or 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.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Pontiac Grand Am 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. In general, manufacturers like Pontiac advise that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. 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 expert technicians are happy to examine your 1988 Pontiac Grand Am brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 1988 Pontiac Grand Am’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 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. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Grand Am. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Pontiac Grand Am 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 Grand Am, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Pontiac’s standards.
Your Pontiac Grand Am engine may be strong and reliable. 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. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. 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. Get your 1988 Pontiac Grand Am brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
