  • Peak temperature.
    Your brakes need to withstand 800 to 1,000 degrees when you drive downhill.
  • Strong performance.

Tips on all aspects of your brakes

Your brakes must be tailored exactly to your Volkswagen's engine performance, weight and top speed.

Check safety.
Have your brakes checked whenever you change your tyres. Plus: We recommend one check a year.

Change in pairs.
The brake discs and pads on one axle must be changed in pairs in each case. If they are more heavily worn on one side of the vehicle, your Volkswagen may pull to one side in an emergency braking situation.
