Stop in the name of safety! Our technicians are trained to perform 1991 Mazda RX-7 brake checks, services, and repairs. Schedule your appointment.
Getting your 1991 RX-7’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. 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 check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Mazda, 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, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Mazda RX-7 better than anyone else. 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 disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes inspecting the parking 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. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our technicians will inspect your 1991 Mazda RX-7 brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
When should you change the brake pads on your 1991 Mazda RX-7? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 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. 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 RX-7. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Mazda RX-7s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your RX-7, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Mazda’s standards.
Your Mazda RX-7 engine may be strong and reliable. One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1991 Mazda RX-7. Our brake repair services include brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
