How often should you change your 1992 Pontiac Grand Am’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Grand Am. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Pontiac Grand Am brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Grand Am, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Pontiac’s standards.
