You know your Volkswagen Beetle like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Generally speaking, automakers like Volkswagen suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

When should you change the brake pads on your 2013 Volkswagen Beetle? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 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 timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Beetle. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Volkswagen Beetle brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Beetle, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Volkswagen’s standards.
