Volkswagen Atlas Maintenance Schedule
Routine maintenance is the key to getting long-lasting performance out of your vehicle. A versatile SUV like the Volkswagen Atlas is no exception. How often will it need maintenance? To help drivers in the Toms River, Brick, and Freehold areas know when to schedule a service appointment, Toms River Volkswagen created this Volkswagen Atlas maintenance schedule.
Every 10,000 Miles
To make sure your SUV is on the road for as long as possible and runs smoothly, it’s recommended that you bring your VW Atlas in for maintenance every 10,000 miles. Whether you’re driving a new SUV and getting maintenance for the first time, or you’re behind the wheel of a used model that’s coming up on 100,000 miles, service technicians will give you an oil change. They’ll also replace your oil filter.
After doing that basic work under the hood, they’ll inspect your tires. That includes checking the air pressure and adding air if needed. They’ll also look over your tread. If the tires don’t need to be replaced, technicians will rotate your tires to make sure the tread wears evenly.
In addition to routinely looking at these two parts of your SUV, technicians will also inspect all the interior lights and both the headlights and taillights and replace any burnt-out bulbs.
Every 20,000 Miles
When you come back with 20,000 miles on the odometer, you’ll get all the same service and inspections as you did last time. After another tire rotation and oil change, technicians will check your brake pads, battery life, exhaust system, and coolant levels. They’ll also give you a new supply of transmission fluid and a new transmission filter.
Every 40,000 Miles
At the 40,000-mile mark, it’s common to have your tires replaced. If a technician doesn’t think they need to be replaced yet, you’ll have another tire rotation. Your SUV will also get all the same maintenance as it did before. On top of getting new oil and transmission filters, your Volkswagen Atlas will also receive new dust and pollen filters and get its air filter element replaced.
Every 80,000 Miles
By the time you put 80,000 miles on your Volkswagen Atlas, it will be running like a well-oiled machine. This appointment is all about getting you ready to hit six digits on the odometer and then keep you traveling even further. Once again, you’ll get a series of filters replaced as well as an oil change and tire rotation. After checking your fluids and doing a multi-point inspection, service technicians will also replace your spark plugs.
