Brakes are important for you and your vehicle as they are designed to stop in the minimum stopping distance allowed. That is why it is important for your brakes to be checked regularly to ensure they are working efficiently. If your brakes are not maintained regularly, it could affect your stopping power and cause vibrations through your brake pedal.That is why at Lancaster Volkswagen we have made maintaining your brakes as easy as possible. That is why we do not charge for our brake health checks (any work agreed after the check may incur costs) for added peace of mind.

Why do brake pads or brake shoes and discs need changing on my car?
Every time you use your brakes in your vehicle your brake pads or brake shoes and discs are pushed together. They are separated by a piece of friction material that prevents the parts from rubbing against each other. The friction material is made from ceramic or semi metallic material which will wear out over time. When your brake pad material is low we will report this back to you informing you that your brakes need to be replaced.
However replacing the brake pads is not always enough to ensure that your braking system is working efficiently. Here are three common reasons as to why you may need to replace your discs as well as your brake pads or brake shoes.
Why does my car need a brake fluid change?
Brake fluid plays a crucial role within your braking system. Brake fluid itself must withstand temperatures of up to 230°C to ensure the efficient working of the brake system. However the fluid is hydroscopic, this means that it absorbs moisture. Over an extended period of time water can enter the brake system that turns into compressible vapour. This can affect your brakes efficiency, performance and can even cause the brakes to fail.
