When should you change the brake pads on your 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Chevrolet Cavalier brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads.
