Volkswagen Factory Schedulled Service
All vehicles need maintenance. Your Volkswagen is no different. When owning a V W you expect a level of reliability and comfort every time you enter your vehicle. Whether it is driving to work, the mall, or to a soccer game, you expect it to work. Volkswagen has created a fantastic network of computers in your vehicle that keep track of maintenance items to keep you informed of the status of your vehicle schedule. The first automobiles did not have a fuel gauge, nowadays we would never consider purchasing a vehicle with out one.
Depending on the year and model of your Volkswagen, the amount of service information will vary. It is a good idea to have Peak Auto physically inspect and verify your computers accuracy. What we have found at Peak Auto in the Cary NC area is that the vehicle computer is a bit aggressive in service intervals except for oil and filter changes. All service intervals are based around an oil and filter change which is recommended every 10,000 miles. We recommend an oil and filter change at least every 5,000 miles. Volkswagen in the past has had issues with sludge building up and causing oil pressure light to come on indicating low oil pressure. Low oil pressure will cause engine failure.
You can always double check with you owners manual the recommended service intervals as well. Working on Volkswagens’ constantly has given our highly trained expert technicians and support staff the ability to pin point the state of your vehicles serviceable parts quickly and accurately. That is why we verify your computer’s request with actual physical inspection at no charge with our free 50 point inspection done as routine for every service.
