When should you change the brake pads on your 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your 718 Cayman. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Porsche 718 Caymans that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Porsche's standards.
