WHEN IT COMES TO BRAKE REPAIR, WE DON'T TAKE BREAKS.

FIRESTONE COMPLETE AUTO CARE PERFORMS NEARLY

ONE MILLION BRAKE REPAIRS EVERY YEAR.

 

COMMON BRAKE PROBLEMS

Grinding, squeaking or squealing brakes can indicate a problem with your car brakes that should be addressed. You should also look out if your brake pedal feels spongy or if your steering wheel is shaking. If you've noticed any of these common signs of brake problems, bring your car into Firestone Complete Auto Care. Your car brakes help safely avoid collisions with other objects or vehicles on a daily basis and you must take care of this critical component of your car.

For a free brake check, come into your neighborhood Firestone Complete Auto Care store. We have more than 1,700 locations across America staffed by Firestone Complete Auto Care tire and auto service professionals. We’ll get to the bottom of what’s causing your vehicle's brake problems.

BRAKES GRINDING

Are your car brakes grinding? Grinding car brakes are a sign that the ceramic or semi-metallic brake pads have worn down to the metal backing plate, which is now grinding against the metal of the brake rotors. This condition must be addressed with a brake service as soon as possible. If this goes unchecked, not only will you have to replace your brake pads, but your brake discs, brake rotors, or other brake parts can become severely damaged and will need to be replaced.

BRAKES SQUEAKING AND BRAKE SQUEAL

Some brake manufacturers install a warning mechanism that emits a squeal when the brake pads are worn to the point that they need to be replaced. The sounds of brakes squeaking can also be a result of the brake material interacting with extreme temperatures or humidity. Whatever the case, our Tire and Auto Service Professionals can determine why the brakes are squeaking and repair the issue. We also use Wagner ThermoQuiet brake pads for high quality brake pad replacements for cars and trucks.

SHAKING STEERING WHEEL WHEN BRAKING

A shaky steering wheel can indicate your brake rotors have become worn down or warped. Brake rotors, which are exposed to extreme heat, wear out over time and need to be resurfaced or replaced. Firestone Complete Auto Care Tire and Auto Service Professionals assess the health of your brake rotors during the free brake check.

SPONGY BRAKES

When you press down on the brake pedal, does it feel spongy and soft? Spongy brakes are an indication that air is present in your brake fluid, and the brake fluid needs to be bled, or removed of air. A brake fluid change will also be part of the process to fix soft brake pedal problems.

Firestone Complete Auto Care Tire and Auto Service Professionals can determine the cause of your brake problem during the Firestone free brake check. Let our experts diagnose why your brakes are grinding, squealing or exhibiting any other signs of a brake problem. We're open seven days a week and you never need an appointment. Come into your local Firestone Complete Auto Care today.
