It’s best to get a brake check before your Pontiac Phoenix shows signs of brake troubles. 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 ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, like a battery replacement. 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.
Brake problems include unusual noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Pontiac Phoenix like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Pontiac suggest 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. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1983 Pontiac Phoenix 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 Phoenix’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. 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 Phoenix right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Pontiac Phoenixs 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.
Your Pontiac Phoenix may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 1983 Pontiac Phoenix brake repairs. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
