Generally speaking, automakers like GMC suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

How often do 1990 GMC Jimmy 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. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads 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 Jimmy. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers GMC Jimmy brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed GMC's standards.
