Getting your 1993 940’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 Volvo, like a tire repair or 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.
Brake problems include unusual 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 Volvo 940 better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Vehicle manufacturers like Volvo 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. Not sure if something’s wrong?

When should you change the brake pads on your 1993 Volvo 940? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads 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 940. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Volvo 940 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 940, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Volvo’s specs.
