What to Know About 2011 Volkswagen Jetta Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Volkswagen Jetta and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Jetta. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Jetta maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2011 Volkswagen Jetta 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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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 Jetta's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Volkswagen Jetta problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volkswagen Jetta Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2011 Volkswagen Jetta and our technicians will jump right in 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 Jetta's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2011 Volkswagen Jetta 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Volkswagen Jetta 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Jetta) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volkswagen Jetta won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

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 2011 Volkswagen Jetta running newer, longer. See Volkswagen's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2011 Jetta 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2011 Volkswagen Jetta? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volkswagen Jetta can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Volkswagen Jetta steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Volkswagen Jetta's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Volkswagen Jetta maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. 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 Jetta’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Volkswagen Jetta? 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 does my Volkswagen Jetta need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Volkswagen Jetta engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Volkswagen? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Volkswagen Jetta to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
