When should you change the brake pads on your 2009 Pontiac Torrent? 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Torrent. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Pontiac Torrent brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Torrent, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Pontiac’s specs.
