When should you change the brake pads on your 1997 Acura TL? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads 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 TL. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Acura TL 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 TL, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Acura’s standards.
