When should you change the brake pads on your 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner.

Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Volkswagen Sciroccos that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Scirocco, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Volkswagen’s standards.
