It’s best to get a brake check before your Subaru Impreza shows signs of brake troubles. 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 Subaru, 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, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Subaru Impreza best. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Generally speaking, automakers like Subaru suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled 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. Not sure if something’s wrong?

How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Impreza. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Subaru Impreza brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
