Brake Service at Burlington Volkswagen
Keep your passengers safe as you drive your Volkswagen Jetta with regular brake service from Burlington Volkswagen. We know that stopping is just as important in driving as moving forward, and we want to make sure your vehicle responds quickly when necessary.
Why Do You Need Regular Brake Inspections?
Bring your VW in for regular brake inspections at Burlington Volkswagen. Our service technicians will inspect the brake pads and test the amount of wear left on them. They will let you know if the brakes are good, if they will need replaced soon, or if you need new pads right away.
The brake pads wear from friction every time you apply the brakes. Over time, the pads wear down and stop working as effectively. If not replaced soon enough, the rotors will be damaged and need repaired or replaced. If you wait until this point, your repairs will be more costly because rotors are more expensive to replace.
Service technicians check the brake lines and other components of the braking system to ensure everything is working correctly. Here at Burlington Volkswagen, we check your brakes as part of routine oil changes. You can also stop by our service department anytime during normal business hours for a quick inspection.
How Do You Know When Your Brakes Need to Be Replaced?
As the brake pads wear down, you will notice signs that they aren’t working as effectively. Pay attention to these signs and contact us for service.
- It takes longer for your car to stop completely after you press down on the brake pedal.
- You notice that the brake pedal pushes down further than normal.
