When should you change the brake pads on your 2009 Honda Element? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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 Element. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Honda Element brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Element, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Honda’s specs.
