How often should you change your 2004 Nissan Altima’s brake pads? 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 brake pad replacement for Nissan Altimas that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Altima, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Nissan’s standards.
