When should you change the brake pads on your 1986 Hyundai Excel? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Excel. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Hyundai Excel brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Excel, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Hyundai’s standards.
