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.

Bring your 2017 Volkswagen Golf R to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2017 Volkswagen Golf R? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Volkswagen Golf R battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Golf R stranded. Your Volkswagen Golf R 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 2017 Volkswagen Golf R running newer, longer. To learn how often Volkswagen recommends you have the oil changed in your 2017 Golf R, 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Volkswagen Golf R.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volkswagen Golf R can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Volkswagen Golf R's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Volkswagen Golf R maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volkswagen Golf R cooling, heating, and climate control system.
