How often do 1992 Mercedes-Benz 400E brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your 400E. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Mercedes-Benz 400Es that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your 400E, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Mercedes-Benz’s specs.
