Replacing Your Mercedes-Benz 260E’s Brake Pads

When should you change the brake pads on your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 260E? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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. 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 260E right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Mercedes-Benz 260Es that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Mercedes-Benz's standards.
