Here’s Why 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Volkswagen Tiguan, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Tiguan 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Tiguan, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volkswagen themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volkswagen Tiguan

Bring your 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Tiguan’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Volkswagen Tiguan 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Tiguan) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volkswagen Tiguan 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2013 Tiguan. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volkswagen Tiguan can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Volkswagen Tiguan steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Volkswagen Tiguan's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Volkswagen Tiguan services, 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 Tiguan engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Volkswagen Tiguan radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
