A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2004 Volkswagen Touareg? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Touareg may need a replacement battery sooner.

Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Touareg) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volkswagen Touareg won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2004 Volkswagen Touareg. Get answers to common Volkswagen Touareg maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Volkswagen Touareg alignment checked? 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 use high mileage oil in my Volkswagen Touareg? If your Volkswagen Touareg 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!
  •  Why are my Volkswagen dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Volkswagen Touareg 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.
