When should you change the brake pads on your 2000 Chevrolet C3500? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your C3500. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Chevrolet C3500s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Chevrolet's standards.
