When should you change the brake pads on your 2012 Kia Forte? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking 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 Forte. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Kia Forte brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads.
