When should you change the brake pads on your 2008 Honda Civic? 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. 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 Civic. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Honda Civic brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Civic, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Honda’s standards.
