How often do 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Cutlass Ciera 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 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Oldsmobile's standards.
