How often should you change your 2020 Subaru Outback’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.

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 Outback. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Subaru Outbacks that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Outback, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Subaru’s standards.
