When should you change the brake pads on your 2018 Honda Fit? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Honda Fit 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 Fit, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Honda’s specs.
