When should you change the brake pads on your 1988 Pontiac LeMans? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your LeMans. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Pontiac LeManss that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your LeMans, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Pontiac’s specs.
