When should you change the brake pads on your 1988 Volvo 244? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your 244. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Volvo 244 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 244, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Volvo’s standards.
