It's a good idea to have your 2011 Saab 9-3 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 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 tire repair or an oil change. 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.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Saab 9-3 better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! In general, manufacturers like Saab advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That also includes checking the e-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. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2011 Saab 9-3 brakes. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2011 Saab 9-3? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 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. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your 9-3. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Saab 9-3 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 9-3, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Saab’s standards.
Your Saab 9-3 engine may be strong and reliable. 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. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. 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 the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage.
