When should you change the brake pads on your 2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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 Grand Vitara. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Suzuki Grand Vitara brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Grand Vitara, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Suzuki’s specs.
