Your Guide to 2018 Volkswagen Jetta Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Volkswagen Jetta to last as long as possible. With proactive 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Jetta, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2018 Volkswagen Jetta maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volkswagen themselves. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Jetta perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Volkswagen Jetta problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Volkswagen Jetta Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Volkswagen Jetta for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2018 Volkswagen Jetta. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Jetta stranded. Your Volkswagen Jetta won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2018 Volkswagen Jetta running newer, longer. See Volkswagen's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 Jetta in the chart at the top 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2018 Volkswagen Jetta.

Maintaining your Volkswagen Jetta steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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.

If you fall behind on routine Volkswagen Jetta 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!). 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 your Volkswagen Jetta radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2018 Volkswagen Jetta maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Volkswagen Jetta. Get answers to common Volkswagen Jetta maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Volkswagen Jetta alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2018 Jetta is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • 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.
  •  Why are my Volkswagen dashboard lights on? 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 Jetta, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
