When should you change the brake pads on your 1996 Saturn SW2? It depends on you and your driving style. 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. 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 SW2. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Saturn SW2 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your SW2, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Saturn’s standards.
