Your Guide to 2017 Volkswagen Jetta Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Volkswagen Jetta and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Jetta has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Jetta, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2017 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Jetta running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 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 2017 Volkswagen Jetta and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 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 2017 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. 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 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 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 2017 Volkswagen Jetta engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 Jetta. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2017 Volkswagen Jetta.

Maintaining your Volkswagen Jetta steering and suspension 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Volkswagen Jetta suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut 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. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. 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. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Volkswagen Jetta? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2017 Volkswagen Jetta maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Volkswagen Jetta? You know your Volkswagen Jetta 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 does my Volkswagen Jetta need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Volkswagen Jetta? 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.
  •  Why are my Volkswagen dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Volkswagen Jetta in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
