How often should you change your 2007 Mercedes-Benz C230’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your C230. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Mercedes-Benz C230s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your C230, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Mercedes-Benz’s standards.
