At Faulkner Volkswagen, we are proud to be an authorized service center for Volkswagen vehicles. This means we have access to genuine OEM parts and accessories for Volkswagen. All our auto technicians are also certified to perform auto services and have gone through training in customer service. We also service other makes and models. We are located in Mechanicsburg, PA, only a short distance from the cities of Carlisle, Camp Hill, Harrisburg, and New Cumberland. For brake pad services, we offer front brake pad replacement and rear brake pad replacement.
Brake pads are one of the key components of the brake system. They are used to slow down or stop the wheels from spinning by providing friction pressure to the rotors. Brake pads are made from materials that provide optimum friction. Most common brake pads are made from ceramic, metallic, or organic material. Our qualified technicians can guide you on the best type of brake pads for your vehicle and driving conditions.
With regular use, the brake pads tend to wear, causing them to lose thickness. When the brake pads wear down to a certain level, the vehicle’s braking ability is compromised. If the brake pads are not replaced, the braking ability will continue to deteriorate and also lead to complete brake failure. Also, worn-out brake pads can damage other brake system components, such as the brake rotors, which require more expensive services to fix. Worn-out brake pads also put excessive stress on the suspension, steering, and braking system components.
The brake pad replacement service interval can depend on several factors such as type of brake pads, usage, maintenance, and more. We recommend you have a regular inspection service for the brake pads rather than only following a recommended service interval. This will allow the technician to determine if the brake pads need replacement based on your driving habits.
We recommend OEM Volkswagen brake pads as they offer the best fit and function for your Volkswagen. With the brake system, you don’t want to take any chances. OEM brake pads provide better reliability than most aftermarket brake pads. Along with the best in performance, you will get improved longevity with OEM brake pads.
You can give us a call, or you book a service through our website. Along with certified technicians, genuine OEM parts, the latest technology, and equipment, we offer you a pleasant and hassle-free experience at our service center. This includes several complimentary amenities such as free wifi, beverages, coffee bars, snacks, and more.
