How often should I service my 2014 Volkswagen Golf?

Here’s Why 2014 Volkswagen Golf Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Volkswagen Golf to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Golf. 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 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2014 Volkswagen Golf!

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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Golf perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2014 Volkswagen Golf problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volkswagen Golf

Bring your 2014 Volkswagen Golf to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Golf's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2014 Volkswagen Golf be ready for a new battery? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Golf may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Volkswagen Golf battery. 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Volkswagen Golf won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2014 Volkswagen Golf running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2014 Golf. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2014 Volkswagen Golf.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volkswagen Golf can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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, provide the appropriate Volkswagen Golf steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Volkswagen Golf's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Volkswagen Golf maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volkswagen Golf cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Volkswagen Golf radiator?

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Volkswagen Golf? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Volkswagen Golf to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Volkswagen Golf? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
