What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2013 Volkswagen Jetta?

Here’s Why 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Volkswagen Jetta and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Jetta. 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 Jetta maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 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. 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, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Volkswagen Jetta problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volkswagen Jetta

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Jetta. 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 2013 Volkswagen Jetta 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 Jetta may need a replacement battery sooner. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Jetta stranded. 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 prevent premature wear on your 2013 Volkswagen Jetta engine. To learn how often Volkswagen recommends you have the oil changed in your 2013 Jetta, check out the information table at the beginning 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 2013 Volkswagen Jetta.

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! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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.

Without routine Volkswagen Jetta maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Volkswagen Jetta engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
