When should you change the brake pads on your 2014 Volkswagen Beetle? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Beetle. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Volkswagen Beetles that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. 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.
