You know your Buick Somerset like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check.

How often do 1987 Buick Somerset brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Somerset. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Buick Somerset brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Buick's standards.
