Your Guide to 2017 Volkswagen Passat Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Volkswagen Passat and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Passat has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Passat, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2017 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. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Passat running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2017 Volkswagen Passat problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volkswagen Passat

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2017 Volkswagen Passat and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Passat. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 Volkswagen Passat. 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). 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 prevent premature wear on your 2017 Volkswagen Passat engine. See Volkswagen's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2017 Passat in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2017 Volkswagen Passat.
