Getting to Know Your Volkswagen
The VW line includes something for everyone with the Beetle, CC, Eos, Golf, Jetta, Passat, Tiguan, Touareg and more. From small and zippy to spacious and stately, Volkswagen has something for everyone. Perhaps the greatest thing about the VW is the sturdy yet refined design.
There is a maintenance schedule put forth by the manufacturer for every vehicle, and Volkswagen is no exception. In addition to keeping up that schedule, Volkswagen repair specialists, like us, believe you should consider the following maintenance items too:
- Replacing the dust and pollen filter every other year
- Replacing the tire filler bottle in the mobility set every four years
- Replacing the sparks plugs and tire pressure sensors every six years
If you ignore all of the above, there’s one Volkswagen repair we cannot stress the importance of enough: replacing the timing belt on time. Failure to do so can lead to engine damage.
The repair needs of your VW will vary based on your driving habits and the terrain you cover, so be sure to discuss your needs thoroughly with your automotive service technician. Your repair schedule may vary based on your specific requirements, except the part about the timing belt; we’re totally serious about that – don’t wait!
