Questions About 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf Electric Systems

  • Is it more expensive to repair Volkswagen e-Golf electric vehicle systems? The answer is, it depends. Certain high voltage parts are only available as components in larger units. We do offer promotional financing through the Firestone credit card.* (*Subject to credit approval.)
  • When do Volkswagen e-Golf brakes need to be replaced? A brake check is one of the best ways to know for sure. Staying on top of your OEM maintenance intervals for e-Golf brakes helps, too. In general, however, front brake pad wear is less in electric vehicles thanks to regenerative braking.
  • My Volkswagen e-Golf dashboard warning light is on. What should I do? There are so many reasons the e-Golf dashboard warning light can illuminate. Stop by Firestone Complete Auto Care for an electric vehicle diagnostic to learn more. You may also have a warning light on the dash regarding your high voltage system.
  • What can cause my e-Golf to leak water? Electric cars use a receiver dryer assembly to help keep the A/C refrigerant free of contaminants, and this process can produce some condensation. When it’s warm outside, this condensation may drain under the vehicle. If you’ve been running the air conditioner in your e-Golf for some time, don’t be too concerned to find a bit of water under it. However, if you discover large amounts of water or any coolant leaking under your vehicle, you may have a problem with the cooling system or another component.
  • Where can I get my e-Golf repaired near me? For reliable and comprehensive Volkswagen e-Golf repair services, visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care. Explore our low-voltage and high-voltage services.
  • How frequently should I have my Volkswagen e-Golf vehicle serviced? To determine the optimal service intervals for your Volkswagen e-Golf, it is important to consider factors such as your driving habits, vehicle age, and mileage. Check your owner's manual or speak with an automotive professional for more specific guidance. Keep in mind that even electric cars require regular maintenance, such as tire rotations, brake inspections, and fluid checks. Additionally, electric cars require maintenance for the battery, brakes, and A/C system.

2017 Volkswagen e-Golf EV Services

Has your Volkswagen e-Golf been feeling a bit "off"? Perhaps you've noted weaker braking, or your vehicle doesn't feel like it has the same "get up and go" that it used to. If that's the case, our technicians can run through a no-charge* electric/hybrid vehicle check to get a better idea. Perhaps there is trouble inside your e-Golf's high voltage cooling system -- a high voltage battery that's running hot will strain the battery's performance. Or, perhaps there are Diagnostic Trouble Codes stored in one of your e-Golf's electric modules? Your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care store is ready to offer low voltage and conventional services for all electric cars, including your 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf.

Some Firestone Complete Auto Care locations also provide advanced/high voltage services for electric cars like Volkswagen e-Golfs. High voltage services are any that include taking out the Volkswagen's high voltage, service/safety disconnect plug/switch, servicing high voltage electric machines/motors, the high voltage battery pack, high voltage A/C compressor, any high voltage cables, etc. Call your local store before making an appointment to check if high voltage services are offered.

Some of these high voltage electric vehicle services might include:

Electric vehicle diagnostic: Once we identify the symptoms, a diagnostic is the next step we take when you bring your 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf in to identify the root cause. With the information gathered, a trained technician will further pinpoint any electric vehicle problems and figure out if more tests are needed. We never perform repairs without your approval.

High voltage battery cooling inspection: Your technician will inspect the e-Golf's high voltage battery filter (if applicable) and clean the ducts of the battery.  (This applies to air-cooled high voltage batteries. Liquid-cooled or refrigerant-cooled high voltage batteries are inspected differently.)

High voltage cable inspection: Cables can get damaged. In this inspection, your tehnician will examine the exterior cable jackets and connectors and test to make sure high voltage is NOT transferring to the chassis of your Volkswagen e-Golf. If the cable needs to be replaced, they'll let you know.

Isolation test: During this test, the technician will use a special tool to check for any high voltage components that are "leaking" electric energy to the chassis.

Remove and replace high voltage battery: Is the battery in your Volkswagen e-Golf dead? Electric vehicle batteries may need replacement sooner in hot climates or if you frequently use Level 3 fast-charging stations, as these stations can heat up the battery more. Let us replace it for you.

Health check for the power electronic systems: We'll review the regenerative braking, power inverter, and/or electric drive machine(s)/motor(s) in your Volkswagen e-Golf.

These are just a few of the more specialized electric car services that might be offered at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care. Call first to check!
