How often should you change your 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life.

Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Jeep Grand Cherokee brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads.
