When should you change the brake pads on your 1996 Buick Century? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Century. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Buick Century brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Century, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Buick’s specs.
