It's a good idea to have your 2013 Ram 1500 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 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.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Ram 1500 best. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Ram 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 inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 2013 Ram 1500 brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 2013 Ram 1500 brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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 1500. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Ram 1500 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 1500, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Ram’s standards.
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 stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their 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 the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts.
