What is the Volkswagen Maintenance Schedule?

To keep your vehicle in like-new condition for as long as possible after leaving our showroom, it is important to keep up with the recommended Volkswagen service schedule. At our state-of-the-art service center near Chicago, you know your vehicle is in excellent hands. With all of the latest technology and our highly-skilled technicians, you can expect that your vehicle will be back on the roads of LaGrange in no time. Although the recommended Volkswagen maintenance schedule for your car may vary depending on its year and model, in most cases, following the guide below will suffice.

Initial 10K Miles

When you hit the 10,000-mile mark, your Volkswagen vehicle will need its key systems inspected and maintained. Listed below are the services that should be performed after the initial 10,000 miles:

  • Oil and oil filter replacement
  • Tire rotation
  • Airbag system inspection
  • AdBlue fluid check
  • Wiper blade inspection
  • Headlight cleaning system inspection

20K, 60K, & 100K Miles

What happens when you hit the 20,000, 60,000, or 100,000-mile interval? You should complete all of the 10,000-mile services, in addition to what is listed below:
