How often do 1993 Mercedes-Benz 600SL 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.

Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Mercedes-Benz 600SL brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads.
