The rear brakes tend to wear out quickly; rotors may need replacement by the first brake job. Our technicians recommend that the brakes be inspected for wear regularly.

Volkswagen Golf TDI Inspect Brakes at Every Service as Rear Brakes Wear Out Quickly
Volkswagen Golf TDI Problem
Average Mileage: 110,000 mi (60,000 mi - 160,000 mi)
I always check brakes at service intervals and I am glad I did on this one. My 2006 Jetta TDI did wear out the rear brakes prematurely. Fairly cheap repair if done before rotors are involved. Just replaced the pads and did not have to turn the rotors..
Same problem here. I change the rear brakes 2 times before the front are due for a change. Usually its the other way around on the other cars.
