When should you change the brake pads on your 1985 Toyota Corolla? It depends on you and your driving style. 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Corolla right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Toyota Corollas that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Corolla, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Toyota’s standards.
