When should you change the brake pads on your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan? 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. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Tiguan 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 Tiguans that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Tiguan, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Volkswagen’s standards.
