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 TSX. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Acura TSX brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
