Volkswagen models are equipped with cutting-edge safety features, but the brakes are perhaps the most important safety feature of all. Regular brake service is crucial for keeping yourself and your family safe. When your VW needs brake service, visit Colonial Volkswagen of Medford, serving Somerville and Everett!
When it comes to something as important as your brakes, you want to make sure that you only get the best of the best. When the certified technicians at Colonial Volkswagen of Medford perform brake service, we will use OEM and VW-approved parts and fluids, ensuring that your VW model's braking system remains in peak condition. This is much better than the aftermarket parts you'll find most independent mechanics using.
Regular brake inspections are some of the most important services you can get for your vehicle. Many other brake services are performed as needed, rather than judging by a mileage interval. When you bring your VW in for this service, we will check the condition of the various parts of the braking system.
Brake pads are a vital part of the disc braking system; they press against the rotors (also known as discs) to slow your VW down or bring it to a stop. The brake pad lining, which comes into contact with the rotor, will wear down over time. When it gets thin enough, it will need to be replaced -- and at Colonial Volkswagen of Medford, we will use long-lasting OEM brake pads.
Although the brake rotors will last much longer than brake pads, they will still need to be replaced occasionally. They may also get warped; if they're not too thin, it's possible to simply resurface them.
Brake fluid helps the entire braking system function, but attracting water, it is less effective over time. Before contaminated brake fluid brings you to a much slower stop, come to Colonial Volkswagen of Medford to perform a brake fluid exchange service.
