How long should VW brake pads last?

The lifespan of brake pads depends on various factors such as driving style, usage, and environment. On average, brake pads need to be replaced between 15,000 to 70,000 kilometres. Factors like aggressive braking, heavy traffic, and steep terrain can cause the pads to wear out faster, but defensive driving and lighter usage can prolong their lifespan. Every time you use your brakes, the pads come in contact with the brake discs, creating friction and slowing down the vehicle, which also causes wear and tear on the pads.

To extend the life of your brake pads, it’s best to drive defensively and give yourself ample time to slow down, which reduces the pressure on the pads. Regular inspections and timely replacements are recommended to ensure the safety and proper functioning of your vehicle. It’s advisable to have a professional mechanic inspect your brakes and replace them as needed.

What causes that shuddering and squeaking?

Inferior parts. Cheap brake pads and discs may save money in the short-term but are likely to have issues and need replacement sooner. Invest in authentic VW parts for high-quality, durable and effective brakes.
