Getting your 2008 911’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place.

If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.

You know your Porsche 911 best. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check.

How often do 2008 Porsche 911 brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. 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. 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 911. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Porsche 911 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get 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.
Your Porsche 911 may be powered by a strong engine. 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.
