How often do 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 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 interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Grand Prix right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Pontiac Grand Prix brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Grand Prix, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Pontiac’s standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Pontiac Grand Prix. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal.

What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet.
