How often should you change your 1985 Oldsmobile Firenza’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads 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 Firenza. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Oldsmobile Firenza brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Firenza, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Oldsmobile’s standards.
Your Oldsmobile Firenza engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1985 Oldsmobile Firenza.
