What to Know About 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Volkswagen Beetle to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Beetle. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Beetle, 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 2016 Volkswagen Beetle!

Volkswagen knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Beetle running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2016 Volkswagen Beetle problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volkswagen Beetle

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 Volkswagen Beetle 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Beetle’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2016 Volkswagen Beetle be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Volkswagen Beetle battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Beetle stranded. Your Volkswagen Beetle won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

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 2016 Volkswagen Beetle engine. See Volkswagen's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 Beetle in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2016 Volkswagen Beetle.

Maintaining your Volkswagen Beetle steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Volkswagen Beetle 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 Beetle's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Volkswagen Beetle maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Volkswagen Beetle’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Volkswagen Beetle? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2016 Volkswagen Beetle maintenance.

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

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Volkswagen Beetle. Get answers to common Volkswagen Beetle maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Volkswagen Beetle alignment checked? You know your Volkswagen Beetle better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Volkswagen Beetle need 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 Beetle engines.
  • Can Volkswagen dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Beetle to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
