Routine Maintenance Schedule

Routine maintenance is vital to ensuring your Volkswagen car or SUV lasts a long time. By bringing your vehicle in for regular service at Hiley Volkswagen of Arlington, you can make sure our expert technicians catch problems before they arise and optimize your vehicle to withstand all driving conditions.

But how often does your vehicle need regular maintenance, and what kind of maintenance should you have done? Let's break down the specifics.


How often do I need to change the oil?

Check your owner's manual about the specific needs of your vehicle. In general, new Volkswagen vehicles need an oil change once a year or every 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. The exception is the Routan model, which should receive an oil change every 6,000 miles.

How often do I need to rotate the tires?

Again, the duration between tire rotations will vary by Volkswagen model, though our general advice is roughly every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. The easiest way to think of that is oil change once a year, tire rotation twice. When you're about halfway due for an oil change, it is time to rotate the tires.

How often do I need to change the transmission fluid?

While some owners with car expertise feel confident in tasks like changing their oil, changing the transmission fluid is one task that Volkswagen highly advises you to leave to the professionals. Information regarding this process and the schedule behind it can be found in the Warranty and Maintenance Booklet that came with your owner's manual.

How often do I need to change the timing belt?

The timing belt is less predictable than your oil. Check the owner's manual for guidance on your specific Volkswagen model, or ask our service technicians the next time you are in for an oil change.
