Though the importance of engine, transmission and tire services often receives the most attention, you should never underestimate the importance of regular, certified maintenance for your brakes. Your brakes are made of various components that serve specific purposes, but when one of those components wears out, the rest of the system will be affected. For example: even if the rest of your brakes system is in excellent condition, if you let your fluid go too long between exchange intervals, it could cause corrosion and other damage to the metallic parts of your brakes. The same goes for every part of your brake system: brake pads, rotors, and lines are all just as important to have maintained. Make sure that your brakes are taken care of by a Volkswagen-certified technician. It’s the only way to ensure the job gets done right by someone qualified, has done the service before, and has access to the genuine OEM parts necessary for your Volkswagen vehicle.
Some of our most common brake services are outlined below.

We’ve told you before, and we’ll tell you again: maintenance is always best when done in conjunction with the service intervals in your owner’s manual. Those service intervals were set up by the manufacturer of your vehicle, who knows exactly what your vehicle needs and when it needs it. That being said, things like your driving style, driving conditions, and types of driving can all impact the rate of wear and tear on your Volkswagen’s brakes - excessively hot weather, start-stop traffic, and city driving will all make your brakes wear out more quickly. To mitigate this premature wear and tear, keep an eye out for these common symptoms of rapid brake wear:
