How often do 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190D brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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. 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 190D. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Mercedes-Benz 190D brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 190D, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Mercedes-Benz’s standards.
