Summer Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Volkswagen in Top Shape

Our certified technicians strongly recommend having a multi-point inspection completed to get a full picture of your Volkswagen’s current health status. In particular, we recommend having the following systems inspected to make sure they won’t fail at an inopportune time.

  • Fluid Level Checks - Your engine, car battery, transmission, and brakes each require fluid for lubrication and temperature regulation to perform properly. Since automotive fluids can degrade with age, they need to be exchanged frequently. Now is a great time to have them inspected and changed if contaminants have built up.
  • A/C System - With the hotter temperatures, make sure you and your loved ones can stay cool during the summer months. Have your air conditioning system inspected, the filter replaced, and the refrigerant recharged if necessary, so your A/C system can blow cold air to keep you comfortable.
  • Battery - Don’t get stuck on the side of the road with a dead car battery when our certified VW technicians can run a diagnostic check to see if it has sufficient power left. Your car battery drains over time, and if it can no longer provide the necessary electrical current to your vehicle’s components, your VW won’t start.
  • Tire Wear and Pressure - We can check your tires for wear and tear, holes and damage, appropriate tread depth, and pressure. We can inflate them for you, repair holes, and suggest tire maintenance services based upon their tread wear pattern.
  • Windshield Wipers - Your windshield wipers can become brittle, crack and warp with age, UV light, and debris. Ensure you can see clearly during inclement weather by having compromised windshield wiper blades replaced sooner than later. If your blades are smearing moisture, it can cause hazardous driving conditions.

Routine Preventative Maintenance for the Summer

While routine preventative maintenance is critical in any season, the summer is the perfect time to have your Volkswagen checked. Any minor problems that developed during the colder months can be identified before they have a chance to worsen. Some of these issues can be exacerbated with further driving and the increase in temperatures. At Germain Volkswagen, our certified technicians can check the major systems in your VW to ensure they are as close to factory specifications as possible. If they’re not, we can work to correct that.
