When should you change the brake pads on your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon? It depends on you and your driving style. 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.

Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Oldsmobile's standards.
