Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2011 Volkswagen Routan. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years.

Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Volkswagen Routan? You know your Volkswagen Routan better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Volkswagen Routan? 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!
  •  Why are my Volkswagen dashboard lights on? 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.
