What to Know About 2014 Volkswagen Routan Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Volkswagen Routan and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Routan could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Routan maintenance. Just follow your 2014 Volkswagen Routan maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volkswagen themselves. 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; 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 Routan running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2014 Volkswagen Routan problems.

Overview of Essential Volkswagen Routan Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2014 Volkswagen Routan for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 Routan. 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.

Could your 2014 Volkswagen Routan be ready for a new battery? 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). 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. 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 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 2014 Volkswagen Routan engine. See Volkswagen's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2014 Routan 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. 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 2014 Volkswagen Routan.

Routine upkeep for your Volkswagen Routan suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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. Components within your Volkswagen Routan's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Volkswagen Routan maintenance, 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Volkswagen Routan engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Volkswagen Routan radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too.

  • What should I do after hitting 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? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Volkswagen Routan 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.
