Why is Regular Servicing So Important?

Scheduled maintenance to your VW is important for many reasons. For one, this ensures your utmost safety. Maintenance checks include checks to wheels, tyres, brakes, windscreen blades and more. With regular checks, you will know that you can always rely on your car parts to do their jobs.

In addition, you’ll find that you save money in the long run and lengthen the lifespan of your car if you don’t skip services. This will also retain the value of your vehicle, giving you the edge if you ever want to sell.


How Often Should I Service My VW?

The servicing regime depends a lot on the mileage, as well as the make and model of your VW. If your car is new, we recommend coming in for your first service at 12 months or 15,000 kilometres. Your car should really be serviced based on the distance that you’ve driven, so if 12 months hits and you’ve only hit 9,000 kilometres, don’t stress too much about making the appointment. If everything seems to be running smoothly and the check engine light hasn’t come on, then you should be okay to keep driving. Just make sure you keep an eye on your odometer and don’t accidently wait another 12 months.


Volkswagen –“a Driver’s Car”

Like many other luxury European cars, Volkswagens are built for optimal performance. They provide an unparalleled experience on-road, meaning that it’s important to treat them like a well-oiled machine off the road. The drivers who understand this are the ones who have the least amount of problems with their VW. They are the ones who will treat their cars nicely by regularly servicing them will avoid common problems like ignition coil issues and window regulator malfunctions.

The good news is that if something goes wrong, you can always see a specialist VW service centre to replace any damaged parts with genuine VW parts. These parts are designed with the whole car in mind, which helps your vehicle to run as smoothly as it was designed to.
