Your Official VW Spring Service Checklist
4 Things to Get Done at Your Local Volkswagen Dealer
It’s safe to say that the worst of winter is behind us now. We’re not completely out of the woods yet, but we should see more warmer days as we steadily move forward
With warmer weather comes a few changes. It means you’ll be putting away your heavier coats and jackets until the fall. It also means that you’ll start thinking about outdoor gatherings and camping trips a little more, so it’s a good time to consider taking in your VW to your local Volkswagen dealership to get serviced. A change in weather means that some adjustments and routine checks need to be made to your vehicle to ensure it runs in optimal condition.
Fortunately, this can all be easily and expertly handled at our VW Service Center. Here are the top four services to consider so that your VW vehicle is ready for springtime driving.
A Post-Winter Wash and Professional Detailing
Sand, salt, and debris. These are the elements that are most encountered during wintertime driving that should be removed as quickly as possible. Not only can these things degrade the look at the car, but they can also cause deterioration to the body and some of the parts. Although we don’t have to worry about it as much here in Texas, salt has eaten away at more than its fair share of cars over the years.
Additionally, getting your car professionally detailed will remove all the dirt, grime, sand, and salt that are typically tracked in from outside. It’s also a good idea if you have messy kids or pets that shed in your car. Trust us, there’s nothing quite like entering a new season with a showroom-ready VW.
Tire Inspection and Air Pressure Check
Springtime is the perfect time to check and make sure that your tires have enough tread left on them to tackle another season. Of course, you can do this yourself using the old penny trick, but our suggestion is to stop by the VW service center to have it checked out by a professional. They’ll be able to tell you how much life you have left on your tires in addition to getting your air pressure just right for Spring driving.
If it turns out that your tires are on their final miles, our service team can set you up with a new set of tires, no problem. We carry a large stock and wide selection of tires for VW sedans, compacts, and SUVs.
Winter can really wear down the battery. When temperatures are low, it means that your battery is working harder and draining faster. That’s why it’s always a good idea to get your battery tested and verified by a VW service center professional at the beginning of spring. Our technicians use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that your battery is in optimal condition. In the event that it’s at the end of its life or they find irregularities, they can always swap it out for a new one.
Chances are, you haven’t even touched your air conditioning unit in a while. Now that winter is behind us and the days will start getting warmer, it’s a good idea to make sure your A/C is in good working order. The sooner you can get this done, the better. The last thing you want is to roll into July with an A/C unit that isn’t ready for those 90-degree Houston summer days.
Don’t Forget About Your Carefree Coverage
If you own a late model DW vehicle (2021 or 2022 model year), it’s covered under our Carefree Coverage warranty plan. This means you can come to the VW service center and have many of your routine maintenance services taken care of at no additional charge. The coverage breaks down as follows:
