Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volkswagen Passat Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1993 Volkswagen Passat for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 Passat. 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 1993 Volkswagen Passat. 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 Passat battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Passat) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volkswagen Passat won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1993 Volkswagen Passat engine. See Volkswagen's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1993 Passat 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1993 Volkswagen Passat.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Volkswagen Passat? 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 Passat need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Volkswagen Passat? 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 Volkswagen dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible.
