How often do 2012 Chrysler 200 brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 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 200. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Chrysler 200s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 200, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Chrysler’s standards.
