Getting your 2003 350Z’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 Nissan, like 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, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Nissan 350Z best. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Vehicle manufacturers like Nissan generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit 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 2003 Nissan 350Z brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often should you change your 2003 Nissan 350Z’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 interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your 350Z right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Nissan 350Z brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 350Z, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Nissan’s standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Nissan 350Z. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, 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. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2003 Nissan 350Z. We offer many affordable brake repairs like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
