Why You Might Need VW Brake Replacement

Brakes are one of the primary safety features in our vehicles. About as important as our tires, our braking system helps us remain in control under various conditions. There are some pretty easy ways to determine if you need VW brake service, so let’s look at some of the most common signs and symptoms of bad brakes.

You’ve Got Wear-Warning Or ABS/TC/DSC Lights on the Dash

If your onboard diagnostic systems alert you to a problem, come and see us for Volkswagen brake service. In most cases, these lights are all colored a yellowish-orange, indicating that the vehicle is still operable but requires service. If you see any of these warning signs illuminated in red, see us immediately before major repairs are required or an accident occurs.

You’ve Got a Shaking Steering Wheel

When you use your brakes exiting the freeway, you might notice a slight (and sometimes severe) shimmy at the steering wheel. If this occurs with a pulsing sensation at your brake pedal, you might need new brake rotors in addition to brake pads and other equipment. Schedule service today before this becomes a major safety issue.

You Can See, Hear, & Smell Something Wrong

Get assistance if you can hear metal scraping metal, if you see metallic shavings on your wheels, or smell something burning (usually from the front of your car). You might have badly worn pads, rotors, or seized brake calipers. Let our pros get you squared away while you save money with our targeted service specials.

VW Brake Service Cost & Other FAQs

Our VW Service Center works hard to help you save money on quality maintenance and repairs that you can trust. Enjoy peace of mind from a shop that you know will take care of you and your vehicle as if you were family. That’s part of the Jim Ellis Promise. The following answers some common questions we receive:

What does a full brake service for your Volkswagen vehicle include?

In nearly all cases, full service starts with a brake inspection. Beyond pads, rotors, and sensors, we’ve got to ensure that your brake lines are corrosion and leak-free. We’ll measure and inspect the entire system and let you know if there’s additional service required for boosters, cylinders, valves, and modules.

How often do you need brake service?

As a general rule of thumb, you’ll need to service your front brakes twice for every service on your rear brakes. In terms of years and mileage, this largely depends on your car year, model (its weight), region, and driving style. For example, if you frequently tow with a VW Atlas, you might need to see us yearly. On the other hand, if you own a VW Arteon that’s used only on weekends, you might only need to see us once every few years.

How long do Volkswagen brakes last?

OEM pads are designed to last between 30,000 to 70,000 miles. That said, vehicle condition, weather, driving style, and more can all impact how long your brakes will remain in good condition. Speak to a service specialist for more information and when you might need to come in for Volkswagen brake service.
