Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2019 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Passat running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2019 Volkswagen Passat problems later.

Overview of Essential Volkswagen Passat Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2019 Volkswagen Passat 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.

Could your 2019 Volkswagen Passat be ready for a new battery? 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. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Passat stranded. Your Volkswagen Passat won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2019 Volkswagen Passat engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2019 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2019 Volkswagen Passat.

Maintaining your Volkswagen Passat steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components 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. Components within your Volkswagen Passat's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Volkswagen Passat maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Volkswagen Passat? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too.

  • When should I have Volkswagen Passat alignment checked? You know your Volkswagen Passat better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • 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.
