What is included in this price?

When you are given a Volkswagen brakes price, you should check that it includes everything you need. The price should include all of the materials and labour necessary to fully inspect your braking systems, as well as to replace any of the parts which have worn out. A Volkswagen brakes price should include replacing the brake pads, discs, shoes, calipers and fluid if they are required, although it is highly unlikely that all of these elements will need to be replaced at the same time. Brake fluid performs an extremely important role and should therefore not be forgotten. It has to withstand enormous amounts of pressure in order to safely bring your vehicle to stop, but it can easily become contaminated. If water gets into the brake fluid hoses than it can compromise the amount of pressure which the fluid can withstand, making your whole braking system far less effective. A top up or a complete replacement of your vehicle’s brake fluid should be included in the Volkswagen brakes price quoted to you, if it is needed.

It is recommended that you completely replace your brake fluid when your car reaches 3 years old, and then every 2 years after that. Make sure that this service is included in your Volkswagen brakes service, otherwise a deal might not be quite as good as it sounds.

How do I know it is time to check my brakes?

How often you need to check your brakes will depend on where and how you use your vehicle. If you mainly use it to make long journeys on motorways then you will probably find that you can go longer before needing to have your brakes serviced. If you tend to drive in towns or cities then you will be needing to ask for a Volkswagen brakes price more often, as driving at low speeds and constantly stopping and starting will put more of a strain on your brake pads.

Car manufacturers recommend that regardless of where you drive, you shouldn’t leave it more than a year between getting your brakes serviced. This means that brake services are a fairly regular expense, making it all the more important to get a Volkswagen brakes price which is as low as possible. By comparing three different quotes at Autobutler, you will be assured that you are getting the best deal and that you wouldn’t be offered a better VW price somewhere else.
