Your Guide to 2016 Volkswagen Passat Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Volkswagen Passat to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Passat could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Volkswagen Passat!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volkswagen themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Passat running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Volkswagen Passat problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Volkswagen Passat Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Volkswagen Passat for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 Volkswagen Passat. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Passat may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Volkswagen Passat battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2016 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 2016 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 2016 Volkswagen Passat.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Volkswagen Passat's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Volkswagen Passat services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.
