Regular Maintenance Reminder
January 12 2018, Southland Volkswagen
Why Is Regular Maintenance so Important?
Your Volkswagen is a strong, robust vehicle designed to withstand even the harshest winter weather. However, there are a few things that you should get checked out every year to help prolong the life of your vehicle:
Change Your Tires
Rotating your tires regularly not only extends their life, but helps braking and handling - especially on the wet, slick roads that are so common in the spring.
Examine Your Brakes
Winter is hard on brakes. An authorized Volkswagen Original service technician will examine your brakes to determine the amount of wear that has occurred. This is important, as gradual wear-down often goes unnoticed. Consider it spring cleaning for your car.
Change Your Oil
It's important to have your oil changed with the product that will keep your engine working at its optimum performance: Castrol premium synthetic oil. That's because, when the days are warmer, you'll be on the road more. You should also have your antifreeze checked, and the cooling system inspected - especially the hoses and drive belt.
