When should you change the brake pads on your 2005 Pontiac Aztek? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles.

If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Aztek. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Pontiac Aztek 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.
