And you know this how?
If u go slow, like speed bumb speed, and u apply the brake easily,lightly, you will hear the brake before u feel it.
Radio off.
You'll hear a slight noise at the rear of the car. Inside ,at the area where the tires are. It's not loud but kinda a dragging thing. Because of all of the people saying the brakes are weird and something's going on I've been keeping an eye on it like I said I've been getting a lot of brake dust and was just listening to the way the vehicle works when you apply the break and as I was going over the speed bumps really slow you know you got to slow down not fly over them oh yeah you'll hear the break come on in the rear before it actually works so I'm thinking the brakes could be dragging at least that's what I'm thinking they they're so tight they could be dragging just a little bit besides that I think the bias is off because the front door should come on a little before the rare ones in my opinion

When it is time to change the brakes, think I might see if the larger GTI brakes will work (Front and Rear). I think the 12.3/10.7 versus 13.4/12.2 would make a world of difference. Should be able to pick up used calipers/brackets easy enough and new rotors/pads aren't terribly expensive.

On a side note, I have had 20 VWs now and on the commuter spec cars (base Golfs, Jettas), I found they have always tended to eat rear brakes faster than fronts. On GTIs, GLIs, R models, the brake wear seems to be a lot more even.

Hello,
I had my first annual service at 9600 miles and was surprised to find out my rear brakes are worn out and need to be replaced.
They are both at 3MM while front are at 11MM.
I have driven many cars over the 30 years I have had a license and never had to change brakes so early even though I drove aggressively cars such as Infiniti G35 and BMW 3 series. Earliest I had to change was at 25.000 miles.
The Taos is not a car that one can push much and I drove it super gently.
VW has a warranty on the brakes for 1 year or 12.000 miles or whichever comes first.
However, the dealership has to determine that the wearing out is due to a defect and not negligence.
They are not budging in and I am kind of stuck.
Does anybody has had a similar experience?

The good news is that if it is the same as the MQB Tiguan then you don't need to remove the caliper carrier to remove the rotor. There's enough wiggle room. Makes the job really easy.
(Removing the caliper carrier on older VWs is a real pain. Stupid high torque stretch bolts holding it on that are hard to get to and need replaced every time...)

Hi i read all about about rear breaking pads. And I have Taos 2022 . I went to service for first 30000 Kms. They said that both rear pads almost gone. So now they are changing pads under warranty. I didn’t pick up my Taos yet. I’ll provide more information after pick up
