A New Car Owner's Guide to Factory-Recommended Maintenance Schedules

Last updated 6 years ago

To ensure that your Volkswagen, Subaru, or Saab will run efficiently for as long as possible, it’s important to follow the factory-recommended maintenance schedules. To learn more about this, check out the following guide to factory-recommended maintenance: 

Which Services Are Necessary

Although different car manufacturers recommend different maintenance schedules, there are a number of services that are required for any Volkswagen, Subaru, or Saab in order to run efficiently. These services include regular oil changes, transmission fluid flushes, tire maintenance (including inflation, rotation, and replacement), brake maintenance, regular battery cleaning, and filter replacement. 


Why To Go to the Dealership for Service

Your Volkswagen, Saab, or Subaru is a machine that is built to last a long time if you schedule high-quality maintenance for it on a regular basis. Since auto shops vary drastically in the quality of maintenance that they offer, it’s wise to take your car to a dealership. Dealerships employ only factory-trained technicians, utilize only the latest tools for car repair and service, and will only use original parts that are built and certified by the manufacturer that made your car. These things make a big difference in the long run. 

Financial Benefits

It’s especially smart to take your car to the dealership for service if you own a Volkswagen. This is because Volkswagens from the 2009 model year and newer benefit from the Volkswagen’s Care Free Maintenance program. This program entitles you to free basic maintenance at your local Volkswagen dealership for the length of your car’s limited warranty.
