Today’s most advanced automobiles are chock full of amazing safety equipment, driver alert systems, and impact mitigation devices. But without the tried and true, time-tested, and proven standard automotive braking system, all these modern advances are little more than icing on the cake. Your brakes are the single most important safety system your Volkswagen will ever have, and without brake pads that are in good condition, even that system will not work well, or for very long!
Brake pads do a vital job in your braking system. They provide a critical buffer between the brake caliper and the rotor, preventing metal-on-metal contact at high speed. With advanced materials, much like what you find in the heat shields on the belly of the Space Shuttle, your brake pads absorb enormous amounts of heat and friction. But of course, these are worn items, which means you will have to replace them eventually. While your front brake pads will tend to wear out first, keeping your rear brakes in fresh pads is a good way to support the work and the integrity of the front brakes.
Most brake pads will last on average between 30,000 and 60,000 miles. This will vary with the size and power of your vehicle as well as the demands to place upon it. Generally speaking, brake pads should be replaced when they are worn down to 3 to 4 mm. Your brakes will let you know when the pads are getting dangerously thin with a telltale metal-scraping noise. But it is much better, and safer to replace them before they reach that point.
The engineers at Volkswagen almost certainly designed a brake pad that is ideal for your make and model. If your car is more than a year old, even more, advanced OEM Volkswagen brake pads may have been designed for your vehicle. The newest OEM Volkswagen brake pads and parts may even last longer and work better than the original pads that your vehicle was shipped out with. Our team here in Hazelwood is sure to have the right brakes for your car, or will be able to order the best available OEM pads the manufacturer currently makes.
