2008 Mazda RX-8 Brake Service & Repair

How Often Do Your Mazda RX-8 Brakes Need Service

It’s best to get a brake check before your Mazda RX-8 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 life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.

Brake problems include unusual noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Mazda RX-8 like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Mazda suggest that rear and front brakes are removed 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 2008 Mazda RX-8 brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.

Replacing Your Mazda RX-8’s Brake Pads

How often do 2008 Mazda RX-8 brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your RX-8. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Mazda RX-8s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your RX-8, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Mazda’s standards.

Get Your Mazda RX-8 Brakes Fixed

You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Mazda  RX-8. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. 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. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2008 Mazda RX-8. Our brake repair services include pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.
