Getting your 1994 850’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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 check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Volvo, like a tire repair or an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Volvo 850 better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Volvo suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 1994 Volvo 850 brakes. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 1994 Volvo 850’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your 850. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Volvo 850s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your 850, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Volvo’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Volvo 850. 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, it’s as good as scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet.

We can help prevent that damage from happening. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1994 Volvo 850. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
