How often should you change your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your 300SEL. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Mercedes-Benz 300SEL brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. 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.
