It’s best to get a brake check before your Volvo 760 shows signs of brake troubles. 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 request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a battery replacement. 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, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Volvo 760 better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Generally speaking, automakers like Volvo 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 checking the parking brake, too. 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. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our technicians will inspect your 1983 Volvo 760 brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
When should you change the brake pads on your 1983 Volvo 760? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 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. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your 760. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Volvo 760 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your 760, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Volvo’s specs.
Your Volvo 760 may be powered by a strong engine. 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’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, 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, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, 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 1983 Volvo 760. Our brake repair services include pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
