It's a good idea to have your 1998 Saturn SW2 brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. 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 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 battery replacement. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the 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 Saturn SW2 like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. In general, manufacturers like Saturn advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection.

How often should you change your 1998 Saturn SW2’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 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 SW2. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Saturn SW2s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your SW2, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Saturn’s standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Saturn SW2. 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! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1998 Saturn SW2. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
