When to Service Your Brakes

Some find it difficult knowing exactly when to get your brakes serviced. That’s why it’s important to consult your Volkswagen Owner’s Manual to see the recommended brake service intervals. However, these are only general guidelines. Sometimes brakes will wear out faster so it’s important to always be aware of your brakes' performance. Since the brake pads are visible between the wheel spokes, it’s easy to monitor them from time to time.

Here are some signs you should come in for brake service:
• Visibly worn-out pads
• Squealing sound
• Grinding or growling noise
• Fading or non-responsive pedal, which can also indicate a leak in the system
• Pulling to one side when pressure is applied to the brake
• Vibration or pulsation when brake is applied

If you notice any of these signs of unusual wear and tear or feel unsure or uncomfortable about your brakes’ performance, stop by Volkswagen of South Mississippi to get your vehicle inspected by our certified technicians.

When to Replace or Resurface Rotors

Like brake pads, brake rotors do wear down over time. The length of this components life will vary based on a number of factors:

• Type of brake pads
• Metallurgy of rotor castings
• Cooling efficiency
• Driving conditions
• Driver’s braking style
• Exposure to environmental elements like moisture and road salt

Always check your Volkswagen Owner’s Manual for the recommended service intervals. If you’re unsure, ask your Volkswagen technician at Volkswagen of South Mississippi.

Here are some signs that your rotor should be resurfaced or replaced:

• Rotor thickness worn down to minimum thickness specifications
• About every other brake pads replacement
• Uneven rotor wear often signified by pedal vibration when brakes are applied
• Corrosion
• High brake temperatures caused by aggressive driving, towing or hauling heavy loads, mountain driving, or consistent use in stop-and-go city traffic
