How often do 2001 GMC Safari brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Safari. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for GMC Safaris that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Safari, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass GMC’s standards.
