Volkswagen Economy Brake Pads vs. the competition
Volkswagen Economy Parts are offered exclusively for Volkswagen vehicles that are five years or older. To compare quality, Volkswagen tested their own Economy brake pads against “equivalent” brake pads available from aftermarket competitors.
In each test, the Volkswagen Economy brake pad proved to be lower wearing and higher performing, with consistent braking behaviour. Side effects of poor performing brake pads can include braking noise, unpleasant odours, vibration, and inadequate brake pedal feel, and most importantly as Economy Parts are subject to the same stringent Formula Q quality assurance program and normal Genuine Parts®, your vehicles driver assistance and emergency systems (ABS, ESC, AEB) will perform as designed by the factory.
