Have Your Volkswagen Brake Rotors Resurfaced or Replaced at Germain Volkswagen of Columbus

Your brake rotors are (typically iron) discs that work together with your brake pads to generate friction that allows your vehicle to come to a stop. Since these parts are usually made of iron, they're prone to your typical wear and tear due to weather, but will also naturally wear down due to repeated use. Simply put, these parts wear out over time and will become warped or acquire grooves/score marks that make them less effective at performing the function they were designed to perform. When that happens, you'll have less braking power, making for a less comfortable and considerably more dangerous ride in your Volkswagen. Take heed of the warning signs of deteriorating brake rotor performance, and you'll give your Volkswagen the best chance of keeping you safe while driving the roads of Columbus, OH.

Be Aware of These Signs of Wear and Tear on Your Volkswagen Brake Rotors

Many factors go into how long your brake rotors will last and when you'll begin to notice signs of deterioration. If your brake rotors are interacting with cheap, aftermarket brake pads, it can cause them to wear prematurely. Extreme climates (really hot or cold) can also cause your brake rotors to wear more quickly than usual, and lots of driving in the mountains, the city, or aggressive driving, in general, puts a lot of stress on your brake rotors. Suppose you find your Volkswagen in any of those situations. In that case, you're much more likely to experience the symptoms more quickly: brake rotors that are noisy when stopping (likely due to corrosion), vibrations in your steering wheel or brake pedal, or cracks/grooves/warping visible when inspecting your brake rotors. Any of those signs likely indicate you need a brake rotor resurfacing or replacement service as soon as possible.

How We Decide Between Resurfacing or Replacement of Your Brake Rotors

For our certified technicians, deciding whether your Volkswagen brake rotors are eligible for resurfacing or replacement is a simple matter of arithmetic. Upon your arrival at our Columbus, OH service center, our certified technicians will take measurements of your remaining brake rotors and consider any surface damage or cracks in the rotors. Should it be determined that they have enough remaining thickness and minimal damage that permits resurfacing, they will resurface your brake rotors for you. If they don't have enough thickness to be resurfaced, a brake rotor replacement service is in your future. Not to worry, though - all of our repairs and replacements are done using genuine OEM parts, so you're getting top-quality parts designed specifically for your Volkswagen.
