Volkswagen Servicing in Oldham, Bury Manchester

Volkswagen is one of the oldest and most popular car manufacturers on the planet, having withstood the test of time to create a heritage spanning some 80 years. VW cars are heavily regarded to be some of the most reliable and friendly cars money can buy, and the brand itself is famed for having a second-to-none customer experience and loyalty. People who buy a VW once rarely go back to other brands afterwards.

With regular maintenance, it’s not uncommon to extract some serious mileage out of Volkswagen cars. Take care of the cars and they’re practically bulletproof. Those of you familiar with VW’s iconic TDI engines know what we’re talking about. You can still see a ton of them on the road today, running as well as they did when they were brand-new. Modern VW cars build upon that history and heritage, continuing the same tradition and image VW is known for.

VW Car Range

As far as model lineups go, VW is probably one of the most diverse car manufacturers in the automotive industry. From city cars and luxury limos to full-size SUVs and even a pickup, VW has a model to suit everyone’s needs. Their most popular models are, by far and away, the Polo and the Golf. The Golf needs no introduction at this point, as you’re bound to see at least a dozen of them should you look outside your window right now.

The Polo slots just below the Golf and it’s the small hatchback of the family range. It’s perfect for small families and people who want a practical city car. If you want something even more compact you can get the Up!, which is the smallest car VW currently makes. It’s the cheapest, most economical form of transport, with plenty of charisma and massive visual appeal should you opt for the Up! GTI version.

The Passat is VW’s full-size saloon car, but they recently axed the old Phaeton which used to sit above the Passat in favour of the brand-new Arteon. SUVs come in all shapes and sizes, starting with the smallest T-Cross and T-Roc. Built on the same underpinnings as their hatchback siblings, the T-Cross and the T-Roc provide a more practical motoring experience with a higher seating position and better ground clearance.

The Tiguan is a compact crossover that slots just below the Touareg, VW’s full-size SUV with real off-roading credentials. Need more space but don’t want an SUV? The Touaran and the Sharan are the perfect people carriers, with more room than you’re ever going to need.

Volkswagen Servicing

Most of the models we just mentioned are built using VW’s MQB modular platform, so they share a lot of components between them. This helps keep production costs down, but it also means cheaper and more durable parts for you, the consumer. Engines vary vastly between models but you can find most of them scattered across the range, with the bigger, heavier models getting the more powerful variants of each. Because of this, a lot of parts are interchangeable, making servicing easy and affordable.

Apart from a regular service, you won’t find a lot of common issues within VW’s lineup. Diesels struggle with diesel particulate filters (DPF) as they get older, but that’s the case with any diesel. Cars equipped with automatic gearboxes need regular servicing to keep them healthy and smooth, especially modern DSG variants, but there’s not much else to say.

Stay on top of maintenance and you’ll enjoy years of hassle-free motoring. Servicing should be performed by experienced technicians, especially when it comes to stuff like changing the cambelt and the waterpump. At Volkmaster, we’re able to deal with any type of service on any type of VW model, so if you’ve got an issue with your car, give us a call or visit us in Oldham (0161 624 5060), Bury (0161 761 3030) or at the Van Centre (0161 628 5270) or complete the booking form and we’ll get you back on the road in no time.

Whether you own a sporty Golf GTi, the ever reliable Passat or a nippy little Lupo, Volksmaster have the skills and experience to look after your Volkswagen and keep you on the road. Not only that but we could save you up to 40% over the price of a main dealer service or repair.

Digital Online Servicing

The Digital Service Schedule is the new way of recording and protecting your Audi/Volkswagen service history. All vehicles built from November 2012 onwards will now have their entire service history stored electronically in a secure online database.

Volksmaster will provide you with a print-out of the service record each time you visit.

The Digital Service Schedule has many advantages over the traditional paper service record including:

  • Access to the full service history for the life of the vehicle from any Volksmaster Centre
  • A security code which can be verified by any Audi Centre to provide added reassurance when buying or selling a vehicle
  • Protection against forgery or the records being lost
  • Proof of service work to protect your warranty

Maintaining a full and up-to-date service history which is trustworthy and accurate will help preserve the resale price of your vehicle.

For more information on Digital Online Servicing please contact Oldham on 0161 624 5060 or Bury on 0161 761 3030.

Arranging Your Service

Drop your car off
Simply drop your car off with us between 8am and 10am and in most cases your vehicle will be ready for collection the same day between 3.30 and 5.30. Outside these hours you are welcome to park.

Wait with your car
Most servicing and repair work can be done while you wait. If this is your preference we have a superb waiting area equipped with free hot and cold drinks and a interesting viewing area where you can watch our trained technicians working on your vehicle.

Courtesy car
If your vehicle needs to stay with us for 1 day or longer then you are able to pre-book one of our courtesy vehicles to keep you mobile.

Pick up / drop off
The ultimate hassle free solution; one of our drivers will arrange to collect your vehicle from your home or place of work at a pre-arranged time and then return your vehicle when the work is complete. Our service advisors will contact you when the vehicle arrives on site during the day to discuss the progress of the work and then advise you of the time you can expect your vehicle back. Contact our service advisors for more details.

  • Cannot praise them highly enough - recommended by a friend for their attention to new Covid 19 situation when they had a car situation 2 weeks ago- had a situation requiring immediate action myself and the good hygiene controls had become even better. Fixed screen in reception - key disinfected in and out/ key elements of car disinfected in and out and great price for job. The 'new' way forward. Thank you. Stay safe. Well done for embracing new normal

  • Great service Great service, really good prices and they keep you informed of what's going on. This is my fourth time using Volksmaster at Oldham and I wouldn't take my car anywhere else. Works are done quickly and at a fair price. Any extra works found when the car is in are highlighted and they let you know and give the options of what you want doing. The staff all seem like they actually want to do the best for their customers which is not common of other places I've used for car works. Only one niggle, that's the online quote request facility on the website. It doesn't seem to work. I've tried it twice and no one ever gets in touch so am guessing it's got a glitch, however, whenever you telephone you always get dealt with efficiently and courteously.

  • Took my daughter's car here for it's second service because the previous owner had it's first service carried out by Volksmaster Bury and he recommended them to me. RUBBISH service!!
    Only joking, everything was great; polite, friendly professional service and a quick turnaround (the service was completed before I had finished my lunch) I will be bringing the car back here for the next service.

    Thanks, Rob

    I've brought both my cars to the Bury branch for the past 7 years and they have been absolute class on every visit!!

    Knowledge, value for money, and most importantly truly honest.

    If you have a German car it’s a no brainer over main dealer rip off merchants.

    Having had a long recurring issue with my VW California i was recommend to Volksmaster Van Centre Oldham.
    Fantastic, professional service from start to finish.
    From booking in and being kept up to date by Stacy, to the explanation of the issue and how they resolved it by Nathan.
    Would highly recommend all the team at Volksmaster.

  • Another Visit to Volksmaster, another happy experience! Only went for wheel balancing this time, however once again their service was fantastic. They gave me readings of each wheel before and after each one was balanced, and the car drives bang on now! Will see you next time the car comes in for a service.

    I had quite a bad central locking fault on my Caddy, which was a real pain for me. Volksmaster did a cracking job to find and fix the fault and went above and beyond in all their service. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff also. Cracking job and service from Volksmaster, would highly recommend.

  • Attended the garage recently on two separate occasions (different reasons). Staff were helpful, polite and informative they didn’t speak to me like I was an idiot, from booking the car in to collecting it later. The garage and forecourt was clean and tidy giving a good impression. Would highly recommend this garage

    I was recommended to VM by a friend when I bought a VW. Finding an honest mechanic isn’t always easy but Ryan has been super helpful any time I’ve had to take my car in. They won’t convince you to have work done that isn’t needed and give you an honest assessment. Plus they have free sweets on the desk 👍🏻

    Best garage around. Not only diagnosed the issue quickly but fixed it within a few days and even fixed a few electrical problems free of charge. Other garages couldn’t find the issue and one garage nearly had me recon my dsg gearbox at a cost of 3k. Highly recommended don’t wast your time at other garages like I did.

    Ryan and the team are professional and knowledgable, they provide great customer service and all the work is carried out to a high standard. They give honest advice and even suggest cheaper alternatives. Not a place that rips you off! I've been going there for years and never had a problem. Chet
