What is the maintenance schedule for the 2016 Volkswagen Golf?

Here’s Why 2016 Volkswagen Golf Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Volkswagen Golf, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. 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 2016 Volkswagen Golf!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Volkswagen, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Golf's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2016 Volkswagen Golf problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volkswagen Golf Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Volkswagen Golf for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Golf. 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.

Could your 2016 Volkswagen Golf be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Golf may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Volkswagen Golf 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Golf) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volkswagen Golf won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2016 Volkswagen Golf engine. To learn how often Volkswagen recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 Golf, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2016 Volkswagen Golf? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Volkswagen Golf 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Volkswagen Golf 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's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Volkswagen Golf services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Volkswagen Golf’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Volkswagen Golf radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it.
