Radiator Service & Repair for 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

Is It Time for Service on My 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Volkswagen recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
