There’s no denying how important your brakes are, especially if you live in an area where you deal with a lot of traffic. If you want to keep your brakes in the best shape for stopping your car, you need to visit Southern Volkswagen Greenbrier for new OEM Volkswagen brake pads in Chesapeake.
When you think about it, it’s pretty incredible that your brakes can stop a vehicle that weighs thousands of pounds even if it’s going fast. To accomplish this, there are a few different parts involved which create friction. The brake pads are the components that actually grip the brake rotors to stop the wheel from moving, so they take on a lot of that friction. Plus, they’re made from a softer material that’s designed to wear down without damaging other brake parts.
Because brake pads are responsible for creating the friction that stops your vehicle, they play a huge role in how much stopping power you have. The more you use your brakes, the more the brake pads will wear down. Eventually, you’ll hear a squealing noise or notice a loss in stopping power when your brake pads start to go bad. A Volkswagen brake pad replacement should be the most frequent part of your brake system service plan. As long as your brake pads and rotors are in good shape and you’ve got plenty of fluid, you’re good to go.
The good news about replacing the brake pads in your Volkswagen is that it’s not too difficult or expensive. However, it’s important to note that front brake pad replacement may be required more than rear brake pad replacement since the front brakes take on most of the wear and tear. In general, it’s a good idea to replace your brake pads once every 25,000 to 50,000 miles, or every few years. However, you should check with your brake pad manufacturer to see what they recommend.
Keeping your brakes in good condition is one of the most critical things you can do to drive safely. The thing is, you need to make sure you’re getting your brakes replaced by somebody who knows what they’re doing and uses quality parts, which is exactly what you get when you take your VW to Southern Volkswagen Greenbrier.
