Rear Brakes Poor Design
By 20jetta07 on


2007 Volkswagen Jetta 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


The rear brakes are design to be replace (Pads + Rotors) every 15,000 miles no matter how much you use them. I use this as a commute car and I will never buy a VW again because of this issue. I like the car but I can NOT believe that VW has this problem and will not correct it. This is an on going problem from the 2000. If you hear a thud in the rear brake area you have a problem that will cost you $400.00 because you have to replace the ROTOR and PADS. This is not something on a car any brand or model.

Best Features

I like the way that it drives and handle but the brakes are a deal breaker.

Worst Features

Fix the rear brake problem with a thicker rotor so that you do NOT have to change this after so little miles. Normally the front brakes are the ones that wear down fast. I was told that you have to change them 2 to 3 times before you do the front.
