It’s best to get a brake check before your Porsche 911 shows signs of brake troubles. 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. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like 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, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Porsche 911 best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Porsche advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 2021 Porsche 911 brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 2021 Porsche 911 brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your 911 right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? 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. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 911, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Porsche’s standards.
Your Porsche 911 may be powered by a strong engine. 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 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, 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. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2021 Porsche 911 brake repairs.
