How often should you change your 2015 Kia Optima’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Optima. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Kia Optimas that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Optima, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Kia’s standards.
