How often do 2006 Volkswagen Jetta brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. 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 timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Jetta. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Volkswagen Jetta brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Jetta, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Volkswagen’s standards.
Your Volkswagen Jetta may be powered by a strong engine. One that’s strong enough to take you into high mileage territory. [content-1-text-4-2] One that can outlast the 170,000-mile mark.
