How often should you change your 2005 Pontiac Sunfire’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Pontiac Sunfires that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Sunfire, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Pontiac’s specs.
