Getting your 2011 Equator’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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 Suzuki, like a battery replacement. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Suzuki Equator best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Suzuki advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

When should you change the brake pads on your 2011 Suzuki Equator? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads 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 Equator. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Suzuki Equator brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Equator, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Suzuki’s standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Suzuki Equator. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills.
