How often do 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Chevrolet Bolt EV brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
