How long do GTI brakes last?

VW Golf GTI brake pads commonly last between 30,000 and 70,000 miles depending on your driving habits. If you travel to work in accomplished traffic and use your brakes naturally, you'll need to get an inspection more continuously.

How do I know what size rotors I need?

Call your local OEM dealer and ask for the original rotor sizes or OEM rotor/pads part numbers based on your vehicle's VIN number (VIN# is referenced in your ownership papers). The dealership may not tell you the rotor size, but they will give you the genuine part numbers for your vehicle.

What engine is in 2008 GTI?

How do you know when brake discs need replacing?

If less than 3mm of the brake pad is visible, then they need to be replaced. Vibrations: If you feel your car vibrating as you brake, it is a sign that your brake discs might be abnormally worn or have suffered thermal damage following severe braking.

How do I find the right brake pads?

You need to consider how long the pads are designed to last as well as the rotor when engaging the brake pads. Noise and Vibration: You'll want to consider how much noise, vibration, and even pedal feel pressing down on the brake pad will cause. Dust Levels: Brake pads may collect dust that then clings to your wheel.

How long do Volkswagen brakes last?

The average lifespan for most Volkswagen brake pads is 50,000 miles, but that number can vary based on how often you drive, the quality of the pads, how well you maintain your VW and your driving style.

How long do VW Jetta brakes last?

What does brake wear light mean?

What the brake pad wear indicator warning light means. Quite simply, when this light is on, the sensor in the brakes has determined that the brake pads are too thin. ... As the pad wears out, the sensor will eventually come into contact with the rotor which completes a circuit and turns this indicator light on.

Why are my front rotors so big?

The front rotor is bigger because you CAN brake more with the front before losing traction. The rear rotor is smaller because a whole lot of extra braking force is just going to make the wheel lock up anyway, so a bigger rotor would just be a waste.

Are bigger brake rotors better?

The bigger rotor will be better for both dissipation and storage of heat. So heat dissipation and storage provide more braking power. The lever arm provides greater braking torque because of the longer lever arm. End result bigger rotor equals more braking torque and more braking power.

Are front and rear rotors the same size?

For some vehicles, the front and rear brake rotors may be the same diameter, and possibly even the same thickness, but they are almost universally of a different design and are not interchangeable.
