Take care of your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Golf SportWagen has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Golf SportWagen maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volkswagen themselves. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Golf SportWagen running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen problems.

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

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Golf SportWagen. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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 SportWagen battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 SportWagen stranded. Your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 Golf SportWagen. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled!

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.

Without routine Volkswagen Golf SportWagen maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.
