When To Get Your Mazda Protege Brakes Checked

It's a good idea to have your 1998 Mazda  Protege brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a battery replacement. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.

Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Mazda Protege best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. 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. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our technicians will inspect your 1998 Mazda Protege brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.

Brake Pad Replacement for Your Mazda Protege

How often should you change your 1998 Mazda Protege’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Protege. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Mazda Protege brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Mazda's standards.

Brake Repair for Mazda Protege

Your Mazda Protege 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, then it's 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. 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 the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 1998 Mazda Protege brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
