Volkswagen Recommended Fall Maintenance Services

  • Battery Inspection with Testing - Batteries are vital for vehicle mobility, experience a short life compared to other vital components, and are susceptible to extreme heat and sluggish performance in colder temperatures. These characteristics explain why we recommend that fall maintenance include a battery inspection with electrical performance testing. Batteries in bad physical condition or failed electrical test should be replaced immediately to prevent vehicle immobilization.
  • Tire Inspection - With sub-zero conditions and slippery roads ahead, fall maintenance should include a thorough tire inspection. A certified Volkswagen tire inspection includes checking for irregular tread wear and sidewall damage, measuring the tread depth to ensure sufficient traction, and adjusting inflation pressures as needed. Many Volkswagen drivers in Bedford, MA, switch to a winter tread tire for peak traction and safety in winter's adverse conditions.
  • HVAC System Inspection - Fall maintenance should include an HVAC system inspection to ensure comfortable and safe driving in colder conditions. Be sure to check the defroster, heater, seat warmers, and steering wheel warmers if equipped for the best driving experience.
  • Windshield Wiper Blades Inspection - Windshield wiper blades are necessary for visibility and safety but are thin rubber strips susceptible to rapid depreciation. Fall maintenance should include checking the windshield wiper blades for damage, poor performance, and age. Blades with rubber damage, leaving streaks, or more than 1 year old should be replaced.
