Have you neglected maintenance tasks on your Volkswagen recently? Are you driving aggressively or pushing your VW to its limit? What about washing and waxing — when was the last time you cleaned and polished your car? With 2021 on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to start taking better care of your VW sedan or SUV.
Drive more carefully
It’s easy to become aggravated behind the wheel, but doing so has negative effects on your Volkswagen. The faster you brake and the more aggressively you accelerate will wear your car out much faster. This year, exercise patience behind the wheel and be gentle with your car. It’ll preserve the engine, tires, and brakes. Speaking of tires…
Monitor the tires
Every month in 2021, check your Volkswagen car’s tires for proper inflation, cracks, bulges, damage, or signs of wear and tear. The pavement around Dallas and Fort Worth can be hazardous and damage your car’s tires, so it’s important to catch any problems before they become emergencies. Plus, the temperatures can rise and fall dramatically throughout the year here in Lewisville, and those fluctuations can cause your tires to deteriorate more.
Wash and wax regularly
The Texas heat, pollutants in the air, and debris on the road can severely damage your Volkswagen’s exterior over time. Give your sedan or SUV a protective shield with a thorough wash and re-waxing every couple months.
Schedule an oil change
Clean, fresh oil protects your engine, helps it run well, and promotes fuel efficiency. This year, check the quality of your engine’s oil every month and refer to your owner’s manual for recommend oil change intervals. A change in season is a great reminder to schedule an oil change at Lewisville Volkswagen.
