How often should you change your 2008 Saab 9-3’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. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your 9-3. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Saab 9-3s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 9-3, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Saab’s standards.
