It’s best to get a brake check before your Porsche 911 shows signs of brake troubles. 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 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.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Porsche 911 like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check.

How often should you change your 1986 Porsche 911’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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 911. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Porsche 911s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your 911, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Porsche’s specs.
