Getting your 2014 C/V’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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 an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating 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 C/V best. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Vehicle manufacturers like Ram generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes inspecting the parking brake. 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 2014 Ram C/V brakes. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2014 Ram C/V? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your C/V. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Ram C/Vs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your C/V, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Ram’s specs.
Your Ram C/V may be powered by a strong engine. One that’s strong enough to take you into high mileage territory. [content-1-text-4-2] One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, 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, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2014 Ram C/V. Our brake repair services include pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
