All power is useless without stopping power. Make a brake service appointment today and let our expert technicians take care of your 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata.
It’s best to get a brake check before your Mazda MX-5 Miata shows signs of brake troubles. 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. 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.
Brake problems include unusual noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Mazda MX-5 Miata like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Vehicle manufacturers like Mazda generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear 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. 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 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata brakes. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. 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 interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your MX-5 Miata right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Mazda MX-5 Miata 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 MX-5 Miata, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Mazda’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Mazda MX-5 Miata. 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. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
