Volkswagens are known for their longevity and reliability. Performing regularly scheduled oil changes is vital when it comes to their overall performance. Not having your oil changed on a regular basis means that your vehicle’s internal components have to kick into overdrive, working even harder than they would normally. This could also lead to unwanted corrosion and an increase in friction, potentially causing further damage. You may also notice an increase in fuel consumption.
Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals suggest that you have your vehicle’s oil changed every year or at 15,000 km, whichever occurs first. Driving styles that include rapid acceleration and deceleration or towing may require more frequent oil changes. If you’re operating the vehicle in climates with extreme heat, dusty conditions, or high altitudes you may be required to change the oil more often than originally recommended. Fortunately, oil changes are a quick and inexpensive way to keep your car running smoothly!
