It’s best to get a brake check before your Volkswagen Phaeton shows signs of brake troubles. 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 tire repair or an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Volkswagen Phaeton better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Volkswagen generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. 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. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our technicians will inspect your 2006 Volkswagen Phaeton brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2006 Volkswagen Phaeton? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Phaeton right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Volkswagen Phaeton brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Phaeton, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Volkswagen’s standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Volkswagen Phaeton. 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. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Get your 2006 Volkswagen Phaeton brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum machining, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
