How often do 1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Cabriolet right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Volkswagen Cabriolet brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
