Getting your 2001 Boxster’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 Porsche, like an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Porsche Boxster like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Generally speaking, automakers like Porsche suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled 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. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2001 Porsche Boxster brakes. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often do 2001 Porsche Boxster brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. 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 Boxster 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. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Porsche Boxsters that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Boxster, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Porsche’s standards.
Your Porsche Boxster engine may be strong and reliable. 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. 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 and responsive brakes go hand in hand. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components.
