Your Guide to 2018 Volkswagen Golf R Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Volkswagen Golf R and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Golf R could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Golf R maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Golf R perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Volkswagen Golf R problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volkswagen Golf R Running Newer, Longer

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

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2018 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Volkswagen Golf R battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Golf R stranded. Your Volkswagen Golf R won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R engine. To learn how often Volkswagen recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 Golf R, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 Golf R.

Routine upkeep for your Volkswagen Golf R suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Volkswagen Golf R suspension and steering services. 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 skip recommended Volkswagen Golf R services, 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 Golf R engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Volkswagen Golf R radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2018 Volkswagen Golf R maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Volkswagen Golf R? You know your Volkswagen Golf R better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Volkswagen Golf R? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil.

It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Volkswagen Golf R engines.
