It’s best to get a brake check before your Volkswagen Atlas shows signs of brake troubles. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or an oil change. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Volkswagen Atlas like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Vehicle manufacturers like Volkswagen generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 2019 Volkswagen Atlas brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 2019 Volkswagen Atlas brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Atlas right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Volkswagen Atlass that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Atlas, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Volkswagen’s specs.
Your Volkswagen Atlas may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. 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. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2019 Volkswagen Atlas brake repairs. We offer many affordable brake repairs like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
