Volkswagen Passat Courtesy Checks

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we perform a multi-point Courtesy Check during any vehicle service. We do this to get a clear idea of your Volkswagen Passat’s maintenance needs and get ahead of potential problems. What happens during a Courtesy Check? First, a technician will pop the hood on your Volkswagen Passat and test the battery to see how much charge it has left – and determine if it may fail in the near future. No one wants to be stranded with a dead or weak battery! We’ll follow the battery inspection with a visual check of your Volkswagen Passat’s filters, lights, wiper blades, alignment, tires, hoses, belts and fluid levels. After the Courtesy Check, you'll receive a report of your vehicle's condition. Does a Courtesy Check cost anything? Nope. Courtesy Checks are free. In exchange, you get some priceless peace of mind.
