When it comes to brake repairs, your safety is of utmost importance. Even if you’re a careful driver, Volkswagen Passat brake problems can put you at risk on the road. 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. Even the most well-maintained cars will need brake repair at some point, including your Volkswagen Passat. Over time, parts of your brakes (like the brake pads) experience natural wear and tear and eventually need to be replaced. Your car’s brake repair timeline can also be affected by your driving habits, as well as the climate in your area.

Much like brake problems, you don’t want to ignore issues with your tires. If your tires are damaged and can’t grip the road, your safety could be compromised. If you have a flat tire on your 1998 Volkswagen Passat, 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 Passat tire. Tread-area punctures less than ¼ inch in diameter can often be 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. To ensure that tire damage doesn’t take a toll on other components of your vehicle, we may recommend an alignment or tire balancing service at the time of your tire repair.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care is also equipped to handle many 1998 Volkswagen Passat transmission, drivetrain, and engine repairs. Each of these systems is made up of hundreds of interconnected parts, each rubbing against another to create heat and energy. 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 Passat. With these symptoms, it’s best to bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care to diagnose the problem. The repair might be a simple spark plug replacement, or a more involved fuel pump fix.
