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.

Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Volvo S60 like the back of your hand. 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 removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

How often do 2006 Volvo S60 brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads 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 S60. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Volvo S60 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your S60, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Volvo’s standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Volvo S60. 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 is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components.
