When should you change the brake pads on your 2010 Volkswagen Passat? It depends on you and your driving style. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 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 Passat 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 Passats that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Passat, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Volkswagen’s specs.
