When should you change the brake pads on your 1983 Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your E-250 Econoline Club Wagon. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagons 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 Ford's standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal.

Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage.
