We consider the multi-point inspection to be the leader of the maintenance team. The multi-point inspection was designed to be comprehensive, thorough, and risk-revealing. A certified technician uses the genuine Volkswagen inspection form to check all primary systems, essential components, and safety controls/devices. The results will guide what maintenance is needed for the best performance, reliability, and safety in summer.
Windshield wiper blades can get ruined in a single Minnesota winter with ice wreaking havoc on rubber health. Still, the blades need to be in good condition providing excellent visibility this summer when it rains. Always check the windshield wiper blades before summer, replace them if they have rubber damages, leave streaking/haze on the windshield, or are more than one year old.
The battery is a relatively short-living component that’s susceptible to extreme temperatures. Your battery needs to be at its best when summer arrives, so always get the battery inspected and load tested for summer maintenance. We can provide battery replacement service on the spot if we find that your old battery carries excessive failure risk.
Summer maintenance is an opportunity to check your vehicle’s miles alongside the owner’s manual to see if routine or major maintenance interval service is due. The Volkswagen maintenance schedule generally calls for routine service every 10,000 miles, including an oil change.
