You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Mercedes-Benz, like an oil change.

When should you change the brake pads on your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C350? It depends on you and your driving style. 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 interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your C350 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. Thankfully, when you get Mercedes-Benz C350 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your C350, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Mercedes-Benz’s specs.
