VW SERVICE – KEEPING YOUR PASSAT IN PERFECT SHAPE

VW Service

Volkswagens are fun and, generally, so are their owners. Created to be unique in an ocean of cars that all seemed similar, VW’s have always stood out in the crowd. From a Beetle to a Passat, Volkswagen has seen some people through several seasons of their life. Whether you are a lifetime VW driver or new to the club, time will show that these cars can last forever if you take good care of them. At Auto Works of Brandon, we specialize in import and European cars and our technicians are experts in VW Service in Tampa. Many people say that ownership of an import car is more costly than domestic. Though that is sometimes the case, keeping up with the recommended maintenance schedule for VW service will keep your VW Passat in premium condition and help you to avoid costly repairs resulting from unaddressed issues.

VW’s Maintenance Program generally covers a new Passat through the first 30,000 miles. For Volkswagens with 40,000+ miles, it is recommended that you schedule a VW service visit every 10,000 miles. According to openbay.com, this is the recommended cycle to repeat over the life of your Passat:

Sticking to the recommended maintenance schedule is important, but problems can still arise and the best way to conserve cost is to address them right away. When you go in for your VW service visit, your mechanic should run a complete diagnostic check to verify that all parts are still functioning as intended. If the findings reveal a problem, they will let you know. Sometimes, repair recommendations come as a shock and you may question the necessity of getting the repair, but working with someone you trust will put your mind at ease, knowing that they are prioritizing your best interest.
