Over time, the parts and fluids in your brake system will eventually wear out. These parts and fluids come together to give you strong braking power, but once one of them starts to go bad or wear out, you can almost immediately tell due to decreased braking performance. Some of the brake parts that wear out most obviously are your brake pads, which will begin to make sounds indicating they’re reaching the end of their life, and you’ll notice a drastic decrease in braking performance. Your owner’s manual will let you know how often you need to replace them, and it’s always a good idea to look up the Volkswagen recommended service intervals to see what the manufacturer has to say about brake pads. Anytime you need your brake pads replaced, give us a call at City Volkswagen of Highland, where our certified technicians will utilize genuine OEM parts to restore your braking power to peak performance.
Most drivers will be able to tell if their brake pads are wearing out from the first, most obvious sign of squealing/squeaking brake pads when coming to a stop. This is a design feature of most modern brake pads, in which the squeak is intended to let you know that there’s not much life left in your brake pads. If you’ve noticed that you simply don’t have as much braking power as you used to, and you either have to press the brake pedal harder or for longer to achieve the same stopping power that you previously had, your brake pads likely need to be replaced. You can also perform a visual inspection yourself – or schedule a brake inspection at City Volkswagen of Highland – where, if you notice less than one-quarter inch of thickness left on your brake pads, they require immediate replacement.
When it comes to your brakes, you should only ever install genuine OEM parts when performing brake pad replacement services. The same is true of all services for your Volkswagen vehicle, but when it comes to your brakes, you don’t want to take any chances on discount or aftermarket parts. Your brake system keeps you and your passengers safe while driving your Volkswagen, so invest in the certified technicians with genuine OEM parts you’ll always find at City Volkswagen of Highland.
