We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or an oil change. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Brake problems include unusual noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Volkswagen Tiguan best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Generally speaking, automakers like Volkswagen suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

When should you change the brake pads on your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Tiguan. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Volkswagen Tiguan brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. 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.
