How often should I service my 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco?
You want your Volkswagen Scirocco to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Scirocco has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Scirocco, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco maintenance schedule!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Volkswagen, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Scirocco's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco problems later.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Scirocco. 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.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco. 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 Scirocco 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 Scirocco stranded. Your Volkswagen Scirocco could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco engine. See Volkswagen's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 Scirocco 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil.
