How often should you change your 1998 Oldsmobile Achieva’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Achieva. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Oldsmobile Achievas that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Achieva, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Oldsmobile’s standards.
