How often do 2018 Acura TLX brake pads need to be replaced? 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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your TLX. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Acura TLXs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your TLX, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Acura’s standards.
Your Acura TLX engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, 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 instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Get your 2018 Acura TLX brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
