What to Know About 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Volkswagen e-Golf, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your e-Golf. 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 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 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volkswagen themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your e-Golf perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf problems later.

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

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your e-Golf's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf be ready for a new battery? 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). 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. 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 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty e-Golf) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volkswagen e-Golf could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2018 e-Golf. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 e-Golf.
