Getting your 2012 1500’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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 inspection at any time or during another service, like a battery replacement. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Ram 1500 best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Ram generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes checking the parking brake, too. 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. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 2012 Ram 1500 brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2012 Ram 1500? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your 1500. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Ram 1500s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your 1500, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Ram’s specs.
Your Ram 1500 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 brake, it might as well be 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. 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, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2012 Ram 1500. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
