What to Know About 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Volkswagen Tiguan to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Tiguan 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 Tiguan, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Volkswagen, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Tiguan's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volkswagen Tiguan

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan and our technicians will jump right in 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 Tiguan. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan? In general, car batteries only last 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 Tiguan battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Volkswagen Tiguan won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 Tiguan.
