When should you change the brake pads on your 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles.

Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Pontiac Grand Prixs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
