How often should you change your 2005 Pontiac G6’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

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 G6 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.
