Getting your 1999 Grand Vitara’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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 inspection at any time or during another service, like an oil change. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Suzuki Grand Vitara best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Suzuki generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. 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 ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara brakes. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often should you change your 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Grand Vitara. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Suzuki Grand Vitara brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Suzuki's standards.
Your Suzuki Grand Vitara may be powered by a strong engine. 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 notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, 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 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
