That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems.

When should you change the brake pads on your 2006 Pontiac G6? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your G6. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Pontiac G6s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your G6, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Pontiac’s standards.
