Your Guide to 2010 Volkswagen Passat Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Volkswagen Passat, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Passat. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Passat maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2010 Volkswagen Passat maintenance schedule!

Volkswagen knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Passat running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2010 Volkswagen Passat problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volkswagen Passat Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2010 Volkswagen Passat to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Passat’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2010 Volkswagen Passat. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Volkswagen Passat 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Passat stranded. Your Volkswagen Passat 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 prevent premature wear on your 2010 Volkswagen Passat engine. See Volkswagen's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2010 Passat in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2010 Volkswagen Passat.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volkswagen Passat can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Volkswagen Passat steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Volkswagen Passat's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Volkswagen Passat maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volkswagen Passat cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Volkswagen Passat radiator? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2010 Volkswagen Passat maintenance and repairs.

2010 Volkswagen Passat Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2010 Volkswagen Passat. Get answers to common Volkswagen Passat maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit 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? 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 Passat engines.
  • Can Volkswagen dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Volkswagen Passat 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.
