How often should you change your 1990 Pontiac Sunbird’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles.

Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Sunbird. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Pontiac Sunbird brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
