We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or an oil change.

You know your Honda Ridgeline best. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Honda suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

How often should you change your 2011 Honda Ridgeline’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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 Ridgeline. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Honda Ridgelines that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Honda's standards.
Your Honda Ridgeline may be powered by a strong engine. One that’s strong enough to take you into high mileage territory. [content-1-text-4-2] One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark.
