Whether you drive a Volkswagen Jetta, Tiguan, or one of our other popular models, don’t risk your safety by putting off brake maintenance and repair services. Preventative maintenance is the key to long-lasting brake components, reliability, and functionality. While it may seem like an investment upfront, it can help highlight any areas of concern, so you can have them addressed promptly. If your brakes need repairs or replacement parts, this is the last thing that you should delay. Failing parts can cause unsafe driving conditions, greater stopping distances, and potentially a collision.
Your braking system is a unique combination of parts that must work in sync with one another to slow down your Volkswagen. If one or more of these parts is not performing at optimal levels, it can cause hazardous driving conditions. Our certified VW technicians strongly recommend the following automotive services for your brakes, all of which we offer under one roof at Toms River Volkswagen.
When you suspect your brakes may be having trouble, schedule a brake system inspection with our certified technicians. We will perform a detailed examination of each component, as well as the system as a whole. We check for damage, corrosion, leaks, contaminants, and debris. Only when you are aware of a problem can you work to address it.
Your brake pads will wear down over time and with everyday use because their sole purpose is to provide the necessary friction to stop your vehicle. By its very nature, this friction slowly removes the surface of the brake pads. When this happens, they will need to be replaced.
Similar to the brake pads, the brake rotors also wear down due to friction. These metal discs, however, may be smoothed out if there is sufficient thickness remaining. This is known as brake rotor resurfacing. If they are too thin, however, we will need to replace them for you.
Your brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid that transfers the pressure from your brake pedal to the rest of your brakes. As it flows through the system, it can accumulate debris and will also deteriorate over time. It will need to be exchanged to prevent thick, sludge-like material that lacks efficacy.
Have you noticed a lack of pressure when you depress the brake pedal? Have your brakes been performing poorly, needing greater distances with which to stop? Have you noticed a burning odor or vibrations in your steering wheel when you brake? Is your Volkswagen’s dashboard warning light illuminated? Along with a failed inspection, these are the most common indicators of brake system problems. If your VW car or SUV is experiencing one or more of the above indicators, schedule your brake system service appointment today.
