Car maintenance weekend project before the Superbowl

Posted By on February 7, 2010


Replaced the rear brakes on my daughter’s 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI for the second time in its life this weekend. They were in pretty bad shape, but I enjoyed being able to exchange the “liftetime warranty pads” at Autozone for free. The loner tool program and easy to use warranty make it a “recommended” place to purchase auto parts in my book, even though I’ve found O’Reilly Auto Parts seems to have better prices. I did end up replacing her rotors too … but for $15.99 a rotor I’ll feel better when she has to make a hard stop.
