How often should you change your 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco’s brake pads? 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 timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Scirocco. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Volkswagen Sciroccos that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your Scirocco, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Volkswagen’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Volkswagen Scirocco. One that’s strong enough to take you into high mileage territory.
