How often do 2020 Kia Rio brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Rio. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Kia Rios that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Rio, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Kia’s standards.
