How often should you change your 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Mark VIII. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Lincoln Mark VIII brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads.
