What to Know About 2014 Volkswagen Passat Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Volkswagen Passat to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Passat. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Passat maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2014 Volkswagen Passat!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Volkswagen, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Passat perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2014 Volkswagen Passat problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volkswagen Passat

Bring your 2014 Volkswagen Passat to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2014 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Volkswagen Passat battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Volkswagen Passat won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2014 Volkswagen Passat running newer, longer. To learn how often Volkswagen recommends you have the oil changed in your 2014 Passat, check out the information table at the beginning 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2014 Volkswagen Passat? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volkswagen Passat can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, 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.

Questions About 2014 Volkswagen Passat Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2014 Volkswagen Passat. Get answers to common Volkswagen Passat maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Volkswagen Passat alignment checked? 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Volkswagen Passat? 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? 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.
