You know your Volkswagen e-Golf like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance!

How often do 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your e-Golf 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. Thankfully, when you get Volkswagen e-Golf brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your e-Golf, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Volkswagen’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Volkswagen e-Golf. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal.
