Signs of brake problems include weird noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Ford EXP like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Ford generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

How often do 1985 Ford EXP brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your EXP. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Ford EXP brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get 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.
