How often should you change your 1998 Pontiac Bonneville’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 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.

Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Pontiac Bonneville brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads.
