It’s best to get a brake check before your Mazda Protege 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 battery replacement. 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, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Mazda Protege like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Mazda advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes checking the parking brake, too. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 1999 Mazda Protege brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 1999 Mazda Protege’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Protege. Some brake pad materials last longer than 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. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Protege, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Mazda’s standards.
Your Mazda Protege engine may be strong and reliable. One that’s strong enough to take you into high mileage territory. [content-1-text-4-2] One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be 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 this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Get your 1999 Mazda Protege brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
