How often do 1996 Lincoln Town Car brake pads need to be replaced? 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. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Town Car right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Lincoln Town Cars that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Town Car, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Lincoln’s standards.
