Volkswagen models are equipped with several impressive safety features, but none are more important than the brakes. When the time comes to bring your Volkswagen in for brake service of any kind, head to LaFontaine Volkswagen of Livonia near Westland and Redford Center Township, Michigan. Find out more about brake service on this page, and then head in to see for yourself why drivers from Canton, Dearborn Heights, and beyond choose us.
When it comes to a system as necessary to your safety as the brakes, it’s best not to take any chances. At LaFontaine Volkswagen of Livonia, we employ VW certified technicians who will treat your brakes with the care and skill that they deserve. In addition, they will use OEM and VW-approved parts and fluids to ensure that your VW model’s precision engineering remains in great shape.
Our technicians will check the thickness and condition of the brake pads and brake rotors and let you know whether they need to be replaced soon. They can also check the brake calipers, brake lines, and master cylinder.
When the brake lining on the brake pads has worn thin, you will need to replace the brake pads. Failing to do so may lead to other parts of the braking system being damaged. Come to LaFontaine Volkswagen of Livonia for brake pad replacement with OEM brake pads.
The brake rotors will also wear down, although this takes much longer than brake pads. In addition, they may also become warped or glazed. If this happens, and they still have sufficient thickness, we can often resurface them instead of replacing them.
Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid that enables the entire braking system to work, and it becomes less effective as it takes on moisture. When the time comes for brake fluid exchange service, come to LaFontaine Volkswagen of Livonia.
