2020 Volkswagen Tiguan Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan Oil

Need more info about 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2020 Tiguan’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Tiguan may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Tiguan. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Volkswagen Tiguan Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Volkswagen Tiguan. Volkswagen has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2020 Tiguan. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Tiguan’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Tiguan by considering your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

2020 Volkswagen Tiguan Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Tiguan engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Tiguan engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen Tiguan oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Tiguan exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
