That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems.

If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Volkswagen Rabbit best. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check.
