When you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care for any service, we’ll automatically do a multi-point Courtesy Check. It's one of the best ways to better understand your Volkswagen Golf's maintenance needs and proactively address potential issues. What happens during a Courtesy Check? First, a technician will pop the hood on your Volkswagen Golf and test the battery to see how much charge it has left – and determine if it may fail in the near future. We know that the best time to replace your battery is before you need to. We’ll follow the battery inspection with a visual check of your Volkswagen Golf’s lights, windshield wipers, filters, hoses, alignment, tires, fluid levels, and belts. At the end of your Courtesy Check, we’ll outline everything we found in a report for you. Does a Courtesy Check cost anything? Nope. Courtesy Checks are free. If those few minutes can save you from repair costs down the road, they’re worth it!
While every visit to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care includes a Courtesy Check, we can also dig deeper and perform a Complete Vehicle Inspection on your 1988 Volkswagen Golf if you prefer. A Complete Vehicle Inspection is our most comprehensive diagnostic service. In addition to a visual check of everything that's included in a Courtesy Check, a Complete Vehicle Inspection also includes an examination (by hand!) of your exhaust system, steering and suspension, and brakes. This inspection is aimed at informing you of any major problems that could require preventative maintenance. Because you can only drive with confidence when you have confidence in the health and integrity of your Volkswagen Golf.
Depending on where you live, your local Firestone Complete Auto Care may be able to perform emissions tests, state-mandated inspections, or safety tests on your vehicle. Inspections are performed on a state-by-state basis and requirements vary. Before you head to your nearest store for an emissions test or other state inspection, call ahead to make sure this service is offered.
Don’t let car worries get the best of you. Schedule a complimentary Courtesy Check for your Volkswagen Golf today.
