Getting your 2011 MDX’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. 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. 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.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Acura MDX 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 Acura advise that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes checking the parking brake, too.

Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 2011 Acura MDX brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often do 2011 Acura MDX brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your MDX. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Acura MDX brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your MDX, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Acura’s specs.
Your Acura MDX 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. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2011 Acura MDX.
