How often should you change your 2017 Audi A3 Quattro’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

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 A3 Quattro 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. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Audi A3 Quattros that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
