Vehicle manufacturers like Acura generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

How often should you change your 1988 Acura Legend’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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 Legend. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Acura Legend brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Legend, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Acura’s standards.
