How often do 1999 GMC Savana 1500 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. 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 timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Savana 1500. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for GMC Savana 1500s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.

You might have a strong and reliable engine in your GMC Savana 1500. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal.
