Brake Pad Replacement

Brake Pad Replacement Service

Volkswagen Brake Pad Replacement in Dayton, OH

Do your brakes no longer seem to be as responsive as they once were? Do you find yourself pressing your foot down hard to feel like the vehicle is stopping? Is there squeaking, grinding, or any other unpleasant noise that comes up whenever you slow or stop? Do your brake pads appear "thin" when you peek at them? If you've answered "yes" to any of these questions, your Volkswagen could be due for a brake pad replacement sooner rather than later. Here's what you need to know about this service and what it entails.

Why Brake Pads Need to Be Replaced

Brake pads are one of those parts that will eventually wear down with time and use. The frequent pressure against your wheels is what causes the wear and tear, but of course, it's necessary to bring your vehicle to a safe stop. It's worth noting that brake pads can wear unevenly, depending on whether the vehicle is front-wheel or all-wheel drive, as well as the position of the wheels when you stop. But if you notice issues with any of your brakes, it's important to get brake system service as soon as possible to make sure your vehicle is safe.

How Often Should I Need a Volkswagen Brake Pad Replacement?

The real answer to this depends on how frequently you drive, as well as the kind of terrain you're on and how often you apply the brakes. For example, a person who regularly drives around hills and backcountry roads may need less frequent brake system service than someone who frequently drives in the city. Likewise, someone who often drives in heavy, stop-and-go traffic and has to brake a lot will also cause more wear and tear on the brake pads. Generally speaking, a Volkswagen brake pad replacement should take place between every 30,000 and 70,000 miles. It's a good idea to consult your Volkswagen car manual for recommended brake maintenance intervals.

Front Brake Pad Replacement vs. Rear Brake Pad Replacement

As mentioned, brake pads can wear unevenly. However, they should always be replaced in pairs. Basically, front brake pads should always be replaced together, and vice versa to ensure safety and also help prevent your tires from wearing out unevenly (if one is stopping more readily than the other, this can cause unwanted friction). You can schedule a front brake pad replacement at the same time as a rear brake pad replacement, or you can get them done separately based on your specific needs.
