The Significance of Regular Volkswagen Service

Just like you prioritize proper nutrition and regular exercise for a healthy life, your Volkswagen requires regular service and maintenance to ensure peak performance and longevity.

Your vehicle consists of various intricate systems designed to function correctly, both individually and in harmony with one another. Each system contains multiple components and fluids. Given that fluids degrade over time and parts wear out, it becomes essential to monitor the health of these components and systems to keep your Volkswagen running smoothly.

By adhering to the recommended service intervals, you can maximize your Volkswagen's performance and minimize the need for extensive repairs. This is why we highly recommend scheduling routine service appointments with our certified VW mechanics in Chicago, IL.

Servicing Your Volkswagen

When you bring your Volkswagen to VFC, you can expect a range of services tailored to Volkswagen vehicles, including:

Front Suspension Inspection
Volkswagens, especially their upper control arms, are prone to front suspension issues. The original front suspension arms from the factory typically last between 40,000 to 60,000 miles. Factors like poor road conditions and frequent parallel parking contribute to premature wear. To address this, we utilize higher-grade OEM replacement upper control arms that generally have a lifespan of 60,000 to 80,000 miles.

Oil Change
Our recommendation for oil changes is every 5,000 miles or 5 months, and we exclusively use synthetic oil with additives specifically engineered for Volkswagen engines. This is vital because Volkswagen engines have engine seals made from natural rubber. Delaying oil changes or using the wrong oil can lead to rubber deterioration and oil leaks.
Fuel Filter
If your Volkswagen has a diesel engine, we strongly advise replacing the fuel filter annually due to the generally poor quality of diesel fuel in the Midwest. For gasoline engines, the fuel filter is integrated into the fuel pump and isn’t serviceable separately.
