When should you change the brake pads on your 2010 Pontiac G6? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. 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 Pontiac G6 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your G6, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Pontiac’s specs.
