Your Guide to 2009 Volkswagen Routan Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Volkswagen Routan to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Routan. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Routan, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2009 Volkswagen Routan maintenance schedule!

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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Routan perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2009 Volkswagen Routan problems.

Overview of Essential Volkswagen Routan Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2009 Volkswagen Routan to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Routan’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2009 Volkswagen Routan? 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. 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 Routan 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 Routan) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volkswagen Routan won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2009 Volkswagen Routan engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2009 Routan. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2009 Volkswagen Routan.

Routine upkeep for your Volkswagen Routan suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Volkswagen Routan steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Volkswagen Routan's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Volkswagen Routan maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volkswagen Routan cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Volkswagen Routan? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2009 Volkswagen Routan maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Volkswagen Routan? 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 switch my Volkswagen Routan to high mileage oil? If your Volkswagen Routan 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? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Volkswagen Routan, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
