We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start.

When should you change the brake pads on your 2016 Jeep Compass? It depends on you and your driving style. 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Compass. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Jeep Compass 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 Compass, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Jeep’s standards.
