What to Know About 2018 Volkswagen Beetle Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Volkswagen Beetle and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Beetle. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Beetle maintenance. Just follow your 2018 Volkswagen Beetle maintenance schedule!

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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Beetle running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2018 Volkswagen Beetle problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volkswagen Beetle Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 Volkswagen Beetle and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2018 Volkswagen Beetle. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Volkswagen Beetle won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2018 Volkswagen Beetle running newer, longer. To learn how often Volkswagen recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 Beetle, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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 2018 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, 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.

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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volkswagen Beetle cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Volkswagen Beetle radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2018 Volkswagen Beetle maintenance.

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

2018 Volkswagen Beetle Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 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? 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 use high mileage oil in my Volkswagen Beetle? If your Volkswagen Beetle has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Volkswagen dashboard lights on? 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.
