Volkswagen Golf Brake Pad Replacement

When should you change the brake pads on your 2004 Volkswagen Golf? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your 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. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Volkswagen Golfs that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Golf, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Volkswagen’s standards.
