When should you change the brake pads on your 2003 Suzuki Vitara? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking 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 Vitara. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Suzuki Vitaras that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Vitara, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Suzuki’s standards.
