VW Tiguan Oil Change | McDonald Volkswagen

Every 5,000 to 10,000 Miles

It’s no secret that changing your oil and filter is the key to long-lasting performance.  Not only does motor oil lubricate your engine, but it also helps remove moisture and other dangerous particles.

If you’re a light driver, you might be able to extend the time between oil changes up to 10,000 miles. Our VW technicians can provide proper guidance after each oil change. During this time, you should also have our team complete the following:

  • Tire rotation
  • Brake pad inspections
  • Top off all fluids

Every 20,000 Miles

At 20,000 miles or about every two years, you’ll want to bring your VW Tiguan in for a full brake inspection. This involves taking a closer look at the brake pads, rotors, and calipers. The technician should also inspect the alignment to make sure each tire is properly set.

Additionally, you might need to replace your VW Tiguan’s windshield wipers and inspect the exterior bulbs for any burnouts.

VW Tiguan Brake Repair | McDonald Volkswagen

Every 30,000 to 50,000 Miles

At this stage, the engine and cabin filters will most likely need to be replaced. This also is a good time to start paying closer attention to both your tires and the SUV’s braking system.

Our techs and service professionals can give you a timeline as to when each item should be replaced. If you notice your brakes starting to weaken or it becomes harder to steer, immediately schedule a service appointment.

Every 60,000 Miles

Once your VW Tiguan reaches the 60,000-mile mark, it’s time to start replacing each tire as well as the brake pads. Keep in mind that their lifespan may fluctuate and will depend on your personal driving habits.

During this important stage, you’ll also want to fully inspect the suspension system and replace any leaky hoses.

VW Tiguan Spark Plug Replacement | McDonald Volkswagen

Every 75,000 to 100,000 Miles

As your VW Tiguan begins to enter its veteran status, you should think about having your vehicle’s transmission flushed and replaced with clean fluid. You’ll also want to start paying attention to the finer details, including:

  • Replace broken spark plugs
  • Inspect driveshaft boots
  • Lubricate the driveshaft
  • Replace engine belts

Once you surpass the 100,000-mile mark, you should make a point to bring your VW Tiguan in for a full tune-up. If you keep with each mile marker, you can expect many more years of happy travel.
