How often should you change your 2005 Saab 9-3’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner.

Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Saab 9-3 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads.
