Sleek, stylish, fast--the Volkswagen Jetta is definitely the ride for speed-hungry racers and vain auto enthusiasts. But if it doesn't have an awesome brake pad set to hold down the fort behind the wheels, no driver would be able to enjoy driving this car in the fast lane. Make sure you equip your brakes with high-quality brake pads for real rotor-biting performance both on and off the race track. These pads will fortify your brake pedal and ensure maximum clamping force every time you slow down or stop the car. With a fully functioning brake pad set, you won't have to endure ear-piercing squealing noises and shaky vibrations while driving.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • What can be done to extend the life of the Volkswagen Jetta brake pad set?
    Answer: Frequent inspection of the brake system and cleaning the brake drum regularly will definitely prolong the service life of the brake pads. This involves investing in a parts cleaner or a rear brake dust cleaner, spraying the entire brake assembly with a brake clean spray, and applying silicone brake lubricant on the brake shoes. Performing these tasks will remove corrosive and damaging materials in and around the pads, eliminate the dust buildup in the system, and protect the pads against quick wear.
  • What's the advantage of using a ceramic Volkswagen Jetta brake pad set over a metallic one?
    Answer: Using a ceramic brake pad set on a Jetta ensures a quiet and improved brake system performance. Unlike metallic pads, ceramic pads dissipate heat better, create less dust, and act gently on the rotors. Though metallic pads are cheaper and more aggressive, these are more abrasive so they wear out the rotors faster. Ceramic pads are less prone to early wear and tear; using these is more practical because they do not need to be replaced frequently.
  • When should the Volkswagen Jetta brake pad set get replaced?
    Answer: Though expert Jetta DIYers recommend changing the rear brake pads every time the vehicle hits 30,000 miles and front brake pads every 55,000 miles, this might not be accurate because brake pad service life varies depending on these factors: transmission type, brake pad location, and owner's driving habits. Jetta brake pads wear out more easily in automatic transmissions and these are also more prone to wear if they are installed at the rear. Aggressive drivers who love speeding may also shorten the life of the brake pads, so they may need to replace their car's pads even before they reach 30,000 miles.
