It’s best to get a brake check before your Volkswagen Touareg shows signs of brake troubles. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Volkswagen, like a battery replacement. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burnt smell coming from the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Volkswagen Touareg better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Vehicle manufacturers like Volkswagen generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2005 Volkswagen Touareg brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 2005 Volkswagen Touareg’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. 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. 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 Touareg. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Volkswagen Touareg brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Volkswagen's standards.
Your Volkswagen Touareg engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2005 Volkswagen Touareg brake repairs. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
