When should you change the brake pads on your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads 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 Atlas. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Volkswagen Atlass that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Atlas, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Volkswagen’s standards.

But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best.
