We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start.

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, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Volkswagen Touareg best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Volkswagen generally recommend that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 2009 Volkswagen Touareg brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often do 2009 Volkswagen Touareg brake pads need to be replaced? 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 interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Touareg 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. 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 some of our most popular services. For your Touareg, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Volkswagen’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Volkswagen Touareg. 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.

Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts.
