Here’s Why 2012 Volkswagen Touareg Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Volkswagen Touareg and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Touareg 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Touareg maintenance. Just follow your 2012 Volkswagen Touareg maintenance schedule!

Volkswagen knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Touareg perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2012 Volkswagen Touareg problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volkswagen Touareg

Bring your 2012 Volkswagen Touareg to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Touareg’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2012 Volkswagen Touareg be ready for a new battery? 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Volkswagen Touareg 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 Touareg won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Volkswagen Touareg engine. To learn how often Volkswagen recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 Touareg, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Volkswagen Touareg.

Routine upkeep for your Volkswagen Touareg suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Volkswagen Touareg steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Volkswagen Touareg's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Volkswagen Touareg services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volkswagen Touareg cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Volkswagen Touareg radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Volkswagen Touareg? You know your Volkswagen Touareg better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Volkswagen Touareg to high mileage oil? 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!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Volkswagen? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Volkswagen Touareg, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
