How often should you change your 1984 Pontiac 6000’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. 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. 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 6000 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 Pontiac 6000 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 Pontiac's standards.
