It's a good idea to have your 2004 Pontiac GTO 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 request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Pontiac, like a battery replacement. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Pontiac GTO like the back of your hand. 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 disassembled 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. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2004 Pontiac GTO brakes. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 2004 Pontiac GTO brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. 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 GTO 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 GTOs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your GTO, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Pontiac’s standards.
Your Pontiac GTO 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. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. 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 you steer clear of further brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2004 Pontiac GTO brake repairs.
