A Volkswagen is a luxury car, so it takes a bit of extra effort to keep it running smoothly. If you’re a driver who likes a car with extra good looks and European standards of power, then you’ll have no trouble taking the extra time to regularly service and maintain your luxury vehicle. As well as this, you should be happy to conduct a complete vehicle inspection when necessary.

At Cruise Automotive, we are an independent car service and repair that specialises in luxury vehicles like your VW car.

And the best part is that we do it at much better prices than your dealership. So, has the time come for a complete vehicle inspection for your VW?

Car Maintenance Scheduling

The number of times you need to get your car serviced definitely depends on the car’s make and model. Check the owner’s manual or simply ask your local professional mechanics at Cruise Automotive to determine the right maintenance schedule.

Generally, you should have your VW serviced about every 15,000 kilometres. This varies slightly depending on the make, model and year of the car, as well as how you drive it. If you’re unsure, check with your mechanic.

Pre-purchase car inspections are also required for most vehicles. If your car is more than 5 years old, NSW usually requires for it to have a safety check before you can renew registration.


What Happens During Inspections?

Vehicle Inspections are done so that your car is safe to drive on the roads. Your local North Sydney mechanic who does the inspection will check a few things to determine the safety of the vehicle.

  • Service and parking brake
  • Exhaust system tested and checked for black or blue smoke
  • Steering box and wheel
  • Front suspension, shocks, springs
  • Horn
  • Window and windscreen tints
  • Washer and wipers
  • All mirrors and headlights
  • Reflectors, registration plate lights and hazards
  • Tyres and wheels
  • Fenders and bumpers
  • Fuel tank

Importance of Regular Maintenance

Aside from inspections, it’s important to have your vehicle regularly maintained. This not only ensures the safety of you, your passengers and others on the road, but it will also help your car run more smoothly. VWs are the kinds of cars that give you a lot, but they also require a lot of work. There is a big payoff if you give your Volkswagen the time and care it needs to continue to do its job.

Regular servicing will help you retain the value of your vehicle, as well as saving you money on repairs in the long run.
