Essential Maintenance for Peak Performance

VAG Servicing

Regardless of your specific VAG model, adhering to a regular maintenance schedule is crucial for optimal performance and longevity. Here’s a breakdown of some key services and their recommended intervals:

Every 12 Months or 10,000 Miles:

  • Oil Change and Filter Replacement: Fresh engine oil ensures proper lubrication and reduces friction, preventing engine wear.
  • Cabin Air Filter Replacement: A clean cabin air filter improves air quality inside your vehicle.
  • Visual Inspection: Our experienced technicians will perform a thorough visual inspection of your vehicle, checking for potential issues like fluid leaks, worn brake pads and tyre damage.

Every 24 Months or 20,000 Miles:

  • Spark Plug Replacement: Spark plugs ignite the air-fuel mixture in your engine. Worn spark plugs can lead to decreased fuel efficiency and performance issues.
  • Pollen Filter Replacement: The pollen filter helps trap allergens and pollutants before they enter your car’s cabin.
  • Brake Fluid Change: Brake fluid absorbs moisture over time, compromising its ability to efficiently transfer braking force. Regular changes ensure safe braking performance.

Manufacturer-Specific Maintenance

VAG Group Brands

Each VAG brand also has manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedules that address specific components and service intervals for your particular model. Consulting your owner’s manual for these details is crucial. Let’s explore some brand-specific examples:

  • Volkswagen: For some VW models, replacing the Longlife Service Interval (LSI) indicator may be necessary every 40,000, DSG gearbox oil changes might be required every 40,000 miles on specific models.
  • Audi: Audi models might require a Haldex clutch fluid change for all-wheel-drive systems at specific intervals. Additionally, some high-performance models may have shorter oil change and service intervals.
  • Škoda: Škoda models may have a similar maintenance schedule to Volkswagen, with some variations depending on the specific model.

The Cost of Neglect: Common Problems with Skipping Maintenance

Skipping scheduled maintenance can lead to a domino effect of problems, resulting in expensive repairs and potentially compromising your safety. Here are some common consequences:

  • Engine Damage: Without proper lubrication, your engine can overheat and seize, leading to a costly engine rebuild or replacement.
  • Transmission Issues: Worn or dirty transmission fluid can cause gear changes to become rough or sluggish, eventually leading to transmission failure.
  • Brake Problems: Neglecting brake fluid changes or worn brake pads can significantly increase your stopping distance, jeopardising your safety.
  • Suspension Issues: Worn suspension components can affect handling and ride quality, potentially leading to tyre damage and reduced control.
  • Increased Emissions: Neglecting spark plug replacements can cause incomplete combustion, leading to higher emissions and potential failing of emissions tests.
