When should you change the brake pads on your 2016 Ford Escape? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Escape right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car?

Thankfully, when you get Ford Escape brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
