  1. Golf/GTI VI
    Hi all. My 2011 Golf TDI (manual transmission) has been a great vehicle. I purchased it in 2019, and I love driving it. However, I had a scary issue on the highway recently. While in 6th gear and cruise control set at about 72 mph, I was in the left lane when a semi pulled in front of me. I hit...
  2. Golf/GTI VI
    Hi all, first post here thanks for all the help from these forums in the past. I'm looking opinions on an issue that's been dogging me for a while. When accelerating hard coming out of sharp turns, I'm getting a real nasty high pitched rubbing noise coming from the wheels (happens on both left...
  3. Tiguan (PQ35)
    As stated, installed new Mintex front pads and I believe I installed correctly. rattle only occurs when not braking, when brakes applied immediately disappears. I do not recall any sort of anti-rattle clips on the pads I took off. I did re-use the anti-rattle spring that was on the caliper, is...

    2012 Vw Passat SE 2.5L with about 92.3k miles I've been thinking about getting new brakes & rotors (since they're worn out) and possibly brake calipers. Can anyone suggest some good rotors and pads and possibly calipers? -edit- Also if possible, drilled and slotted ones.

  8. Golf V & Jetta V
    My 2009 GTI has ~98k miles on it. Recently I noticed it's been taking a while to slow down while braking. Note that there's no change in feel in the brake pedal itself. The "check brake pads" light came on, so I assumed it was time for a pad change. Ordered new pads, went to replace the old...

    The Geneva Motor Show always plays host to the debuts of the latest supercars, concept cars, and overly ambitious EVs. In other words, then, it's a show of things that are expensive and nice to look at but are essentially useless in the real world. This made Geneva the perfect place for Brembo...

    What's up with that tuned car in traffic beside me today? It's got a racing seat, sounds like a big turbo, and it's got some pretty serious aero bits. But the brakes are squealing like it hasn't seen service in 30 years. The owner of that fancy fast car wouldn't let their brakes get that bad...

    Go check out the brake rotors on that cool exotic or big performance SUV. Check out all those little tiny holes in them. It's called cross drilling. The holes are supposed to make you stop faster, look more handsome, and leap over tall buildings in a single bound. But how do they work? And more...

    Okayokayokayokay, so I know that we’re all experts in everything, here on the internet, but I actually had no idea why big brakes squeal. It’s not really a big problem in my life, so I tend not to think about it too much, but I have sometimes wondered why racecar brakes make horrible noises...
