What to Know About 2013 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, your Passat has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Passat, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 Volkswagen Passat!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Volkswagen, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Passat's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2013 Volkswagen Passat problems.

Overview of Essential Volkswagen Passat Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Volkswagen Passat for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Passat's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2013 Volkswagen Passat be ready for a new battery? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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, 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2013 Volkswagen Passat's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2013 Passat. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2013 Volkswagen Passat.

Routine upkeep for your Volkswagen Passat 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. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Volkswagen Passat 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 Passat's steering and suspension system.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Volkswagen Passat? You know your Volkswagen Passat better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Volkswagen Passat to high mileage oil? If your Volkswagen Passat has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Volkswagen? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Volkswagen Passat to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
