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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

My car had been back to VW Oldham twice and they couldn’t sort out the fault with my air con. Took it to Volks Master and they fixed it and it is working better than it ever has. Fab garage and really helpful staff. Highly recommendCaroline Schofield15/07/20
I've used Volksmaster for years. they are good mechanics, who explain what is wrong and what are the options. prices are reasonable (much cheaper than a dealer) and service is friendly.Andrew Booth14/07/20
It was not easy to find a garage I could trust. To know what they are doing and be honest about what needs to be done. I know a fair amount about car mechanics, so Im not easily fooled and can identify a con-merchant. If the garage takes the time to fully explain what is wrong with your car and how they will fix it, and does not mind you asking questions, then its a fair sign that they can be trusted. I have been taking both my VW van and Golf there for almost 2 years. I am very happy with their work.Rula Safi03/07/20
Always a pleasure booking the car in highly recommend nathan and the lads do an amazing job the receptionist is lovely always willing to go the extra mile for there customers. I really wouldn't go anywhere else thanks again. Always on time very professionalJordan Clancy30/06/20

Volksmaster Bury My wife took her Lease car to Volksmaster at BURY. There were issues with communications between the Lease Company, my wife's company etc. but we were both impressed with the courteous and professional manner in which the 'guys' at Volksmaster operated and the willingness to provide and excellent customer service and get her car back to her as soon as possible. Well done to all and thank you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDJohn Griffin27/06/20

Absolutly fantastic service that has excelled in every area.I run a very busy car tyre and service centre and one of my services developed a problem while in our care. To cut a long story short our service light reset knocked out or reprogramed a module on the car causing all windows and horn to stop working. Ryan who answered my initial call and worked on the car was fantastic and really helped get the car sorted. Only dealer level diagnostics and reprogramming would sort this problem out and it was done without messing about. It was all done the same day. I am so happy to have chosen VolksMaster over the dealers as they were much cheaper and knew their stuff.Guy's and Girls thank you so much for today you really don't know how happy I am for what you have done.Many Thanks Paul...Paul Widall13/06/20
Excellent service and went above and beyond to help with warranty company. I will definitely recommend and will definitely use again.
I brought my Audi here, following a recommendation from an AA mechanic. I dealt with Mike, who was brilliant. Work was done extremely quick, very efficient and communicated well the whole way through. Also very helpfull in providing me with statements and documents to support my claim to the ombudsman after my warranty company refused to pay for the work.
Thanks guystobi oputa10/06/20
Fantastic customer service every time. Been coming to the same garage for over 10+years and never been disappointed.Heidi Taylor09/06/20
I would highly recommend this place. Very professional. Personally spoke with Mike who was really helpful and gave brilliant advice. He was very honest and genuinely helped us. They are very clean and thoroughly clean car after done which is essential with the current situation.
The service is impeccable, quality of the work is outstanding. I will definitely be going here for all future work.Saim Ghazanfar ali05/06/20
It’s very rare I write a review, but today the service received from Volksmaster was exceptional!
With the COVID-19 issue at the present time they have developed procedures for keeping distance when in the office and disinfecting all parts of the car they touch before the service and when finished.
As for the service, I am very pleased. Everything completed and they also highlighted issues from previous servicing.
As for the cost, I am deliriously happy. Never again will I have the hassle of dealing with an AUDI main dealer who charge the earth and do unnecessary work. (Bye Bye Main Dealers)Colin Buckley27/05/20
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 normalMags Poulton07/05/20

Amazing, went in for brake pads and discs, great hospitality, customer always comes first will be coming here forever 🙂jahanzayb kayani18/03/20
Brilliant service from these guys, car feels brand new, even washed and vacuumed it too...think I will use these more in the future, see how long I can keep my 12yo car going for...hopefully another 12 years?Darren Bastin13/03/20
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.Jonathan D12/03/20
Always friendly and helpful, really know their stuff.
They will advise honestly and charge fairly.
i would not use any other.Roy Clare09/03/20
Volksmaster have looked after my Touareg for the past three years and have done a great job servicing and MOT'ing it - their work is always to a high standard and at a great price. Recommend them to anyone.Anthony Boggiano03/03/20
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, RobRobert Ray28/02/20Steven Brooks28/02/20
Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Car valeted and any potential future issues discussed and advice given. Great service!!Tony North21/02/20
Honest and very professional operation. Keep you updated on progress etc. Not the cheapest but if your after quality then this is the right place.Saying that My Ex's 10yr old car just went for an MOT and only cost £60 with some bulbs and screen wash etc.I have used them for 10 years now and always been happy.Jonathon Wolsey20/02/20
What can you say, great service, car ready when requested, and you don't get ripped off. Keep up the excellent service.Ian Calvert20/02/20
First time using this garage, took my Golf GTI in for a full service, I couldn't be happier. Warm and friendly staff, keep me updated on the current progress of my service. Will definitely be returning to this garage. Keep up the great work guys!Callum Sharples07/02/20
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.Andy Entwistle06/02/20
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.Chris Lukoczki28/01/20Laszlone Foczeny24/01/20
