Taos Exterior

Proper maintenance is essential to keeping your Volkswagen running smoothly on the streets of Bedford and Willoughby, and part of that is sticking to the Volkswagen maintenance plan. After a certain number of miles, you’ll want to schedule an appointment and bring your Volkswagen in for a series of routine services, such as oil replacement, tire rotation, and general inspections. The nature of these services changes based on the number of miles you’ve driven, but don’t worry–the service team at Classic Volkswagen is here to break everything down for you. Read on for an overview of the Volkswagen maintenance schedule and reach out to learn more about the Volkswagen Jetta maintenance costs.!

40K, 80K, & 120K Miles

Finally, when your Volkswagen reaches 40,000, 80,000, and 120,000 miles, we’ll perform the most comprehensive set of inspections and services to make sure everything is running properly. In addition to all of the 10,000-mile services, we’ll do the following:
