It’s best to get a brake check before your Subaru Outback shows signs of brake troubles. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. 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 life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Subaru Outback like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! In general, manufacturers like Subaru advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled 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. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection.

Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2006 Subaru Outback? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Outback. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Subaru Outbacks that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Outback, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Subaru’s standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Subaru Outback. One that’s strong enough to take you into high mileage territory. [content-1-text-4-2] One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. 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 the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2006 Subaru Outback. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
