2020 Volkswagen Jetta Scheduled Maintenance

Maintenance for Your 2020 Volkswagen Jetta

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta?

Here’s Why 2020 Volkswagen Jetta Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Volkswagen Jetta, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Jetta could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Jetta maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2020 Volkswagen Jetta!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Volkswagen, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2020 Volkswagen Jetta problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Volkswagen Jetta Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2020 Volkswagen Jetta and our technicians will jump right in 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2020 Volkswagen Jetta? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Jetta may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

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 2020 Volkswagen Jetta running newer, longer. To learn how often Volkswagen recommends you have the oil changed in your 2020 Jetta, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2020 Volkswagen Jetta.

Routine upkeep for your Volkswagen Jetta suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Volkswagen Jetta's steering and suspension system.

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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volkswagen Jetta cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Volkswagen Jetta? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2020 Volkswagen Jetta maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 Volkswagen Jetta. Get answers to common Volkswagen Jetta maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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? 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.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Volkswagen? 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.
