About the Volkswagen Maintenance Schedule
Every vehicle in the Volkswagen lineup has its own maintenance schedule that highlight the services they need and when they should be scheduled. To understand exactly what your car needs, check your owner’s manual.
But while each Volkswagen vehicle uses a specific maintenance schedule, you can also follow the general guide below to get an idea of when your vehicle needs certain services.
Every 10,000 Miles
Every 10,000 miles, you’ll want to have professional automotive experts check and fill fluids if needed, visually inspect the airbags, and rotate the front and rear tires. Also, it’s recommended that they check the condition of the windshield wipers and headlights as well.

- Brake disc check

Beware of Warning Signs
While the general Volkswagen maintenance schedule can help you provide the appropriate services for your vehicle at the right time, you’ll also want to be aware of warning signs.
When your vehicle is suffering from damage or is overdue for specific service appointments, it will emit warning signs or a dashboard light warning. These let you know that it’s time to take it to a professional service department for maintenance and repairs.
These signs can be anything from unusual smells to loud engine noises that can happen at any time. If you notice anything out of the ordinary about the performance and overall condition of your vehicle even before the next suggested service appointment, contact our service department right away for a diagnosis and repair.
