Getting your 2009 S60’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 ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, 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.
Brake problems include unusual noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, 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 better than anyone else. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. In general, manufacturers like Volvo advise 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. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2009 Volvo S60 brakes. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 2009 Volvo S60’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your S60. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Volvo S60 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 S60, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Volvo’s specs.
Your Volvo S60 engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. 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. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 2009 Volvo S60 brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
