What to Know About 2017 Volkswagen Beetle Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Volkswagen Beetle, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Beetle could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Beetle maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2017 Volkswagen Beetle maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volkswagen themselves. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Beetle's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 Volkswagen Beetle problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Volkswagen Beetle Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Volkswagen Beetle for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Beetle. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2017 Volkswagen Beetle? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Beetle may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Beetle battery. 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2017 Volkswagen Beetle engine.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volkswagen Beetle can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Volkswagen Beetle steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Volkswagen Beetle's steering system require regular maintenance.
