How often should you change your 2011 Audi Q7’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles.

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 Q7. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Audi Q7 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Audi's standards.
