When should you change the brake pads on your 2018 Acura ILX? 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. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your ILX. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Acura ILXs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your ILX, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Acura’s standards.
