It's important to service your Volkswagen regularly in order to keep it running smoothly and maintain it's value.
When you brake, the brake discs that rotate with the wheels are gripped by brake pads, slowing the car down. Both discs and pads can become worn and corroded, so it's vital they are checked at least once per year for your safety.
Why replace your Brake Pads and Discs?
Changing your brake pads and discs when needed will provide both peace of mind and the knowledge that your brakes are in good working order keeping you and other road users safe. Volkswagen Genuine brakes enable you to stop safely in a variety of road conditions. Volkswagen Genuine brakes mesh optimally with your braking system. They are designed precisely for your Volkswagen's top speed and its weight... for quality that goes beyond the statutory ECE-R90* brake standard.
If your brakes aren't maintained regularly you won't be able to brake as efficiently. As well as reduced stopping power, worn or corroded brake parts can make your car vibrate and become really noisy.
What do we do?
We measure the brake pad wear level. If the pads or discs are worn, corroded or warped we will let you know so we can arrange to replace them. It is not always necessary to remove the wheels to check the brake pads (pad wear/thickness, disc condition), but where a further detailed inspection is required (or if the wheel does not allow full visibility) the wheel(s) may be removed.

Here at Joe Duffy Volkswagen we want our customers to feel as comfortable as possible and to have the most enjoyable driving experience. What better way to accomplish this than having a fresh and pollen free car? Start off the summer season with a fresh and pollen free driving experience with Volkswagen.
Most car users use air conditioning in the summer and after months of not being used it collects dirt and other contaminants. Your vehicle’s air conditioning system traps moisture, pollen and dirt which can lead to bacterial and fungal contamination. A refresh treatment disinfects the evaporator and air ducts safely and effectively to ensure that you have sufficient fresh air in your Volkswagen at a pleasant temperature. We recommend that you get your air conditioning changed every 20,000k or once every two years.
At a cost of only €99 at Joe Duffy Volkswagen… fresh air has never smelled better!

In between car services it is always important to ensure that wear and tear items are maintained and your vehicle stays in top condition. To help you ensure that key areas of your vehicle are performing as they should be our Trained Technicians are on hand to perform a complimentary Health Check.
Our Approved Technicians will check your car for the following, free of charge.
A timing belt transfers power from the crankshaft to the camshaft. This causes the engine's valves to open and close. The fuel/air mixture enters the combustion chamber, combusts and drives the pistons. The timing belt also controls the water pump.
By having an old and heavily worn timing belt it may tear and cause engine damage. How does this happen? The engines valve control loses it's rhythm, the piston hits the valve like a bullet at speed up to 15m/s. This has an effect on the cylinder head and usually needs to be being replaced.
