It’s best to get a brake check before your Mazda 2 shows signs of brake troubles. 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 request a free brake inspection at any time or during another 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.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Mazda 2 best. 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 Mazda advise that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 2013 Mazda 2 brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2013 Mazda 2? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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 2. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Mazda 2 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 2, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Mazda’s standards.
Your Mazda 2 may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. 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 prevent that damage from happening. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2013 Mazda 2. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
