How Often Should I Service My Car?

Having routine service done on your car is essential if you want to keep your vehicle running for a long time. Your car has many components, such as the tires, windshield wiper blades, as well as rubber hoses, which are liable to wear and tear. Therefore, they will need to be inspected on a regular basis and replaced when they show signs of wearing out.

Recommended Oil Change To find out when you should take your Volkswagen for maintenance, you should always refer to your owner's manual. The service intervals will vary from one model and year to the next. Another thing to consider is that even if you're between service intervals, you should have your car checked out by a qualified technician if the "Check Engine" light comes on or you notice problems like strange noises.

Here's a general look at what kind of maintenance work should be done on your car after a certain number of miles:

15,000 Mile Service

After 15,000 miles, you car will undergo a basic inspection of its tires, brakes and cooling system. The maintenance done at 15,000 miles should also include an oil change and replacement of your oil filter. However, on some Volkswagen models, it's recommended that oil changes be done sooner, such as once every 5,000 to 10,000 miles.

  • Oil Change - Drained and Replaced
  • Check All Fluid Levels - Top Up as Needed
  • Tires Rotated and Balanced
  • Check Air Filter - Replace as Needed

30,000 Mile Service

Tire Rotation IntervalsSeveral of your car's components will be inspected for signs of wear and replaced if necessary. These include the battery, brake pads, shoes and rotors, brake fluid, coolant and transmission fluid. Rubber belts and hoses will also be checked for signs of deterioration and replaced to prevent failure.

  • Check Brake Pads - Replace as Needed
  • Suspension and Shock Check
  • Check Fuel Filter - Replace as Needed

60,000 Mile Service

Several of your car's components will be inspected for signs of wear and replaced if necessary. These include the battery, brake pads, shoes and rotors, brake fluid, coolant and transmission fluid. Rubber belts and hoses will also be checked for signs of deterioration and replaced to prevent failure.

  • Many of the Same Services from 30,000 Mile Interval
  • Replace Battery as Needed
  • Inspect Brake Rotors - Replace as Needed
  • Check for Wear on Belts and Hoses - Replace as Needed

90,000 Mile Service

There are some vehicle components that last a long time and only need to be checked once your car approaches a hundred thousand miles. This is usually the case with spark plugs and other components of the ignition system. Newer cars use iridium or titanium spark plugs, which are designed to last over 100,000 miles without replacement. As they'll be at the stage where they're near the end of their useful life, your mechanic will likely change them during your 90,000 mile maintenance visit.

Your power steering system and its fluid levels should be checked at this point too. If your power steering fluid levels are low, this can cause noises as you turn the wheel or make your steering excessively hard. On most cars, the power steering fluid will be flushed and fully replaced every 75,000 to 90,000 miles.

  • Many of the Same Services from 60,000 Mile Interval
  • Top to Bottom Inspection
  • Check Spark Plugs - Replace as Needed
  • Inspect Vehicle Safety Technology Features

All rubber hoses in your car should be inspected at this point too. These hoses carry important fluids, such as coolant and power steering fluid. While they're built to last a long time, rubber has a tendency to crack over time, which is why the hoses have to be carefully checked by a mechanic and replaced if signs of excessive wear have been found.
