How often do 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 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 Vanagon. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Volkswagen Vanagon brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
