VW Summer MaintenanceVolkswagen vehicles, although great, need to be maintained properly in order to continue being great. Les us delve into the summer maintenance services needed for your Volkswagen.
For the hot months of the year, it is best to have a properly working air conditioning system in your car, so inspect the one in your VW - especially if you notice that fresh air isn’t entering the cabin, or the one that does enter is somewhat unpleasant. This is usually a sign that something is wrong and the A/C needs service or even repair.
Clean any and all rust that may have gathered between the connections of the car battery. Check on the battery’s fluid as well because due to the hot temperatures and heat it may have evaporated - so do check it more often than not during the summer!
Always keep an eye on the levels of the coolant. After all, it has the tough task to keep the Volkswagen from overheating. Also, if you want to be completely on the safe side, have a mechanic inspect the condition of the coolant due to the fact that it becomes erosive with time; it may need to be flushed and replaced entirely.
And, of course, needless to say, keep track of the oil change schedule. Consult your owner’s manual, or a professional if you must.
The last thing I would like to draw your attention to is the auto repair shop you choose - make sure it is one that can service and repair your German Volkswagen impeccably.
