When should you change the brake pads on your 2018 Subaru Forester? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Forester. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Subaru Foresters that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Forester, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Subaru’s specs.
