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 Skyhawk. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Buick Skyhawks that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Skyhawk, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Buick’s specs.
