Here’s Why 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Volkswagen e-Golf, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your e-Golf has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your e-Golf, 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 e-Golf!

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; 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your e-Golf running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volkswagen e-Golf Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your e-Golf’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf? 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Volkswagen e-Golf battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your e-Golf stranded. Your Volkswagen e-Golf won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2016 e-Golf. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf.

Maintaining your Volkswagen e-Golf steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Volkswagen e-Golf 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 e-Golf's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Volkswagen e-Golf maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Volkswagen e-Golf engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Volkswagen e-Golf? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it.
