When should you change the brake pads on your 1989 Buick Riviera? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Riviera. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Buick Riviera brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
