Recommended Maintenance for Your Volkswagen This Summer

  • Tire Inspection: If you use winter tires, be sure to have them inspected before making the switch. Even if you use all-season tires, it’s a good idea to have the tires inspected before the roads get slick. Our technicians will check the tire tread depth and advise you on what to do; they will also check the tire pressure and make any adjustments if needed.
  • Windshield Inspection: Does your windshield have any cracks or chips? Our technicians can see whether those can be repaired or they need to be replaced. Cracks can spread over winter, so have this service performed.
  • Change Washer Fluid: We can switch the windshield washer fluid to a winter blend, which offers extra protection against freezing.
  • Check Windshield Wiper Blades: Are your windshield wiper blades ready for the winter? We can check at City Volkswagen of Highland.
  • Check Coolant Level: Make sure that your engine has enough antifreeze before winter comes.
  • HVAC Inspection: Our technicians will make sure that the heater in your VW is functioning properly so you can stay warm on the road this winter.
  • Battery Test: Cold weather can negatively affect a battery’s ability to hold a charge, so come to City Volkswagen of Highland for a battery test.

Extra Tip: Prepare a Winter Roadside Emergency Kit

Though not strictly a service, you must be prepared for winter with a winter-specific roadside emergency kit. This should include a change of clothes, warm blankets, food and water, mittens, a shovel, road salt, and other items that may come in handy in a winter emergency.
