What to Know About 2017 Volkswagen Golf Scheduled Maintenance

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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Golf, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2017 Volkswagen Golf maintenance schedule!

Volkswagen knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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. 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 2017 Volkswagen Golf problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volkswagen Golf

Bring your 2017 Volkswagen Golf to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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 2017 Volkswagen Golf be ready for a new battery? 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Volkswagen Golf battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2017 Volkswagen Golf's engine run smoother. See Volkswagen's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2017 Golf in the chart at the top of this page. 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.

Maintaining your Volkswagen Golf steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Volkswagen Golf steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Volkswagen Golf's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Volkswagen Golf maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). 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? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2017 Volkswagen Golf maintenance.

  • When should I have Volkswagen Golf alignment checked? You know your Volkswagen Golf better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • 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.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Volkswagen? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Volkswagen Golf, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
