When should you change the brake pads on your 2009 Chevrolet Corvette? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may 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 Corvette. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Chevrolet Corvette brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
