When should you change the brake pads on your 1998 Oldsmobile Regency? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Regency. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Oldsmobile Regency 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 Regency, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Oldsmobile’s standards.
