Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2013 Volkswagen Routan!

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. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Routan running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Volkswagen Routan problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volkswagen Routan

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Volkswagen Routan for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2013 Volkswagen Routan. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Routan may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Volkswagen Routan battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Routan stranded. Your Volkswagen Routan won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2013 Volkswagen Routan engine. See Volkswagen's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 Routan in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2013 Volkswagen Routan.

  • When should I have Volkswagen Routan alignment checked? You know your Volkswagen Routan better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Volkswagen Routan to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Volkswagen Routan engines.
  •  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. 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
