We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place.

How often should you change your 2002 Ford Expedition’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Expedition. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Ford Expedition brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Expedition, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Ford’s standards.
