It’s best to get a brake check before your Volkswagen Golf R shows signs of brake troubles. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. 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.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Volkswagen Golf R better than anyone else. 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 removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Not sure if something’s wrong?

How often should you change your 2012 Volkswagen Golf R’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 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. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Golf R. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Volkswagen Golf R 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 Golf R, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Volkswagen’s specs.
Your Volkswagen Golf R engine may be strong and reliable. 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. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage.
