When should you change the brake pads on your 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads 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 Tiguan. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. 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.
