When should you change the brake pads on your 1989 Toyota Corolla? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 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 timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Corolla. 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.
Your Toyota Corolla engine may be strong and reliable. One that’s strong enough to take you into high mileage territory. [content-1-text-4-2] One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark.
