Re: How Long Did Your Brake Pads Last? (Golf 2 Slow GLS)

Hmm.... I am at 32k miles and am starting to wonder how much longer they will last. Is it true that a light will come on the dash when they need to be replaced?

Wow, that's pretty good. Are your rear pads OK too? Those supposedly wear faster because of the softer pads that VW put on some of the cars.
Golf 2 Slow-
Your front pads have a wear sensor that will trip and set off a light on your dash when they are critically low. I would not rely on this gizmo, though...your rears may go A LOT sooner.
