Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your 4C right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others.
