Volkswagen Maintenance Plan

Depending on your specific Volkswagen model— from the classic VW Beetle, to the unique Volkswagen Golf, and the impressive Atlas SUV— you’ll want to consult your owner’s manual for any nuances regarding the Volkswagen maintenance plan. As a general rule, Volkswagen engineers recommend a service schedule that is divided into 10,000 mile intervals.

Once you hit your first 10,000 milestone, experts encourage:

  • Oil change
  • Oil filter change
  • Brake pad inspection
  • Service interval display reset (on applicable models)

As you put more miles on your Volkswagen from life around Bethlehem, the inspections vary. At 20,000-, 40,000-, 60,000-miles or more, VW recommends:

  • Oil change
  • Oil filter change
  • Automatic headlight control check
  • Battery inspection
  • Brake fluid check
  • Coolant level check
  • Leakage inspection
  • TPMS inspection
  • Tire tread condition check
  • Tire inflation check
  • Wiper blade check

More About Volkswagen Maintenance

2017 Volkswagen models came with a 6-year/72,000-mile limited bumper-to-bumper warranty. Now, 2020 models come with a 4-year/50,000 mile warranty, but that fully covers the first two years of recommended, scheduled maintenance. Additionally, subsequent owners can enjoy these warranty benefits as they are fully transferable should the Volkswagen title switch drivers.
