If your Volkswagen Passat is in need of some TLC, we’re here to give you (and your car) the top-notch service experience you deserve. A high level of care is what sets the best auto repair shops apart from all the others. You can drive easy knowing that Firestone Complete Auto Care has you covered for 1996 Volkswagen Passat repairs, like tire and alignment repairs, brake work, and even engine and drivetrain services. Read on to learn about each service.
When it comes to brake repairs, your safety is of utmost importance. Even if you’re a careful driver, Volkswagen Passat brake problems can put you at risk on the road. Pulsing in the brake pedal, increased stopping distance, brake noise, or an illuminated dashboard brake light should all be cause for concern. No matter what shape your Volkswagen Passat is in, it will likely need brake repair at some point – and that’s totally normal! As your car ages, brake pads and other small parts will naturally wear out and need to be replaced. Driving habits and climate can also affect when you might need brake repair.
Tire repair is another service you don't want to put off. If your tires are damaged and can’t grip the road, your safety could be compromised. We can easily swap out a flat tire on your 1996 Volkswagen Passat, or if the damage isn’t severe, repair a Volkswagen Passat tire with the appropriate plug and patch. Tread-area punctures less than ¼ inch in diameter can often be repaired. If the type of tire damage won’t allow for a safe repair, a technician can answer any questions you have when choosing a tire replacement that suits your vehicle and your budget. We may also recommend an alignment or balancing when you have a tire repair since tire damage can impact other "around the wheel" parts.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care is also equipped to handle many 1996 Volkswagen Passat transmission, drivetrain, and engine repairs. Each of these systems is made up of hundreds of interconnected parts, each rubbing against another to create heat and energy. These parts are moving anytime your car is running, so over time, they can take on significant wear and tear. If you notice delays when shifting gears, knocking noise from your engine, or a burning smell under the hood, this could indicate a problem with one of these vital systems in your Passat. When something feels off with your vehicle, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. The repair might be a simple spark plug replacement, or a more involved fuel pump fix.
The cost to repair your 1996 Volkswagen Passat depends on the type of repair, the cost of any replacement parts, how much labor the repair will take, and the state you live in. Labor costs and tax rates can be pretty different from state to state. And check back often –– we update our deals regularly!
