2020 Volkswagen Atlas Maintenance

Maintenance for Your 2020 Volkswagen Atlas

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas?

Here’s Why 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Volkswagen Atlas and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Atlas has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Atlas, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2020 Volkswagen Atlas!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volkswagen themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Atlas's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2020 Volkswagen Atlas problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volkswagen Atlas Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2020 Volkswagen Atlas for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Atlas's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2020 Volkswagen Atlas be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Volkswagen Atlas battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Atlas stranded. Your Volkswagen Atlas won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2020 Volkswagen Atlas engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2020 Atlas. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2020 Volkswagen Atlas.

Routine upkeep for your Volkswagen Atlas suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Volkswagen Atlas suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Volkswagen Atlas's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Volkswagen Atlas maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volkswagen Atlas cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Volkswagen Atlas radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2020 Volkswagen Atlas maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 Volkswagen Atlas. Get answers to common Volkswagen Atlas maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Volkswagen Atlas? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Volkswagen Atlas to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Volkswagen Atlas engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Volkswagen? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Volkswagen Atlas to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
