Getting your 2016 Jetta’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Volkswagen, like a battery replacement. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Volkswagen Jetta like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! In general, manufacturers like Volkswagen advise that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes checking the parking brake, too. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 2016 Volkswagen Jetta brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often should you change your 2016 Volkswagen Jetta’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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Jetta. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Volkswagen Jetta brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Volkswagen's standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Volkswagen Jetta. 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. Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2016 Volkswagen Jetta brake repairs.
