How often do 1998 Audi A6 Quattro brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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. 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 A6 Quattro. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Audi A6 Quattro brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads.
