With the right maintenance at the right time, your Golf R has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services.

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Volkswagen, your vehicle manufacturer.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Golf R) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volkswagen Golf R won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Volkswagen Golf R running newer, longer.

  • When should I have Volkswagen Golf R 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 switch my Volkswagen Golf R to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Volkswagen Golf R engines.
  •  Why are my Volkswagen dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Volkswagen Golf R in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
