Your Guide to 1999 Volkswagen Jetta Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Volkswagen Jetta to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Jetta has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Jetta maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1999 Volkswagen Jetta!

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. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Jetta running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 Volkswagen Jetta problems in the future.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 Volkswagen Jetta? 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 Jetta battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Jetta) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volkswagen Jetta could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1999 Volkswagen Jetta running newer, longer. To learn how often Volkswagen recommends you have the oil changed in your 1999 Jetta, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1999 Volkswagen Jetta.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.

If you skip recommended Volkswagen Jetta services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C.
