Know the Difference between Genuine Mazda vs. aftermarket brakes....

When to Inspect and When to Replace?
To keep brake performance at its optimum level, an inspection every six months is recommended. Because brake pads and shoes are hidden behind the wheels and calipers or drums, you cannot visually check how they are worn (without getting dirty). See your authorized Mazda dealer for a brake inspection and ask about our Lifetime Limited Warranty on Genuine Mazda and Value Products by Mazda Brake Pads and Shoes.
