When should you change the brake pads on your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL600? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner.
