When it comes to brake repairs, your safety is of utmost importance. Even if you’re a careful driver, Volkswagen Golf brake problems could lead to unsafe driving conditions – or worse, an accident. Don’t wait to have your brakes inspected if you notice any of the following: brake noises, a shuddering sensation when you hit the brakes, an illuminated brake light on your dashboard, or increased stopping distance. No matter how reliable your Volkswagen Golf is, it'll need brake repair at one point or another. Over time, parts of your brakes (like the brake pads) experience natural wear and tear and eventually need to be replaced. Driving habits and climate can also affect when you might need brake repair.

Much like brake problems, you don’t want to ignore issues with your tires. Tire damage can inhibit your ability to maintain control of your vehicle and stay safe while driving. If you have a flat tire on your 1998 Volkswagen Golf, we can change it for you. In some cases, our technicians may be able to perform a simple patch and plug repair on your Volkswagen Golf tire. More often than not, punctures in the tread area that are less than ¼ inch in diameter can be successfully repaired. If your tire can't be safely repaired, a technician can answer any questions you have when choosing a tire replacement that suits your vehicle and your budget. Tire damage can have a ripple effect on other parts of your car, so we might suggest an alignment or tire balancing service following a tire repair or replacement.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care is also equipped to handle many 1998 Volkswagen Golf transmission, drivetrain, and engine repairs. These systems all have hundreds of integrated parts that use friction to create energy and keep your car running. Over time, all those constantly moving components can get worn down. If you notice delays when shifting gears, knocking noise from your engine, or a burning smell under the hood, this could indicate a problem with one of these vital systems in your Golf. When something feels off with your vehicle, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. In these cases, the repair could range from something minor, like a new spark plug, to a more significant repair, like a fuel pump fix.
