It's a good idea to have your 2011 Volkswagen Touareg brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, like 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.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Volkswagen Touareg like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! 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. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 2011 Volkswagen Touareg brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often should you change your 2011 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. 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 Touareg right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Volkswagen Touaregs that comes with 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.
Your Volkswagen Touareg may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as 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. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. 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. Get your 2011 Volkswagen Touareg brakes fixed at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
