    How many miles since replacement? What kind of road conditions? How long did the originals last? Were they replaced with OEM (dealer) parts , or aftermarket parts? That info might help give you a more informed answer.

    Thanks ... ive driven on normal road conditions- highway and major roads. Nothing terrible. I replaced them in 2011 at the VW Dealer; I have had the car since 2003 and 2011 was the first time I replaced them. Not sure if they were replaced before I got the car. The car had 200,000 miles at the time(in August 2011). Now it has almost 224,000. Thanks

    Does sound a little to soon. Is it the VW dealer that's recommending them again , or another shop? .........Maybe get a second opinion from another (trusted) shop.
