How often should you change your 1985 Oldsmobile Calais’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. 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 Calais. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Oldsmobile Calais brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
