We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start.

How often do 1987 Subaru RX brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. 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 RX. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Subaru RX 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 RX, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Subaru’s standards.
