How often should you change your 1989 Audi 80’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your 80. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Audi 80 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 80, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Audi’s standards.
