It's a good idea to have your 1993 Saturn SW1 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 check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Saturn, like a battery replacement. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Saturn SW1 like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Saturn generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed 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. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 1993 Saturn SW1 brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 1993 Saturn SW1’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 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. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your SW1 right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Saturn SW1 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your SW1, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Saturn’s specs.
Your Saturn SW1 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, then it's scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, 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 example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs.
