It’s best to get a brake check before your Saab 9-7x shows signs of brake troubles. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another 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.
Brake problems include unusual noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Saab 9-7x best. 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 removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

How often should you change your 2005 Saab 9-7x’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your 9-7x. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Saab 9-7x brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.

You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Saab 9-7x. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal.

What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet.
