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.

How often should you change your 2011 Volvo C30’s brake pads? 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your C30. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Volvo C30 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 Volvo's standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Volvo C30. 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.
