VW Summer Maintenance Tips

Recommended Maintenance for the Summer to Ensure Your Volkswagen Runs Smoothly

While routine preventative maintenance is strongly encouraged in any season of the year, this is especially true during the summer months. After the colder months and fluctuating temperatures, such weather can wreak havoc on the automotive systems within your vehicle. With the summer comes more consistent temperatures, so now is a great time to check the current status of your vehicle. Unfortunately, with the summer also comes greater heat in Indiana. If minor problems exist, the higher temperatures can exacerbate them, potentially causing serious damage to your Volkswagen. However, with a few key services, you can ensure your VW is healthy, functioning as intended, and ready for anything you have planned for your summer. Schedule an appointment at Tom Wood Volkswagen of Noblesville, and check out our monthly service specials to see if you can save on your services.


Routine Maintenance for the Summer Can Identify Small Problems so They Can Be Addressed

If you aren't sure whether the systems within your vehicle are working at optimal performance, the most significant thing you can do for your VW is to have a multi-point inspection completed. Our certified Volkswagen technicians will thoroughly examine the components and systems within your vehicle to assess their condition and look for any damage. With in-depth training and expertise in your exact model, we can quickly spot anything that looks out of place. This may include leaks, corrosion or rust, a buildup of contaminants, loose connections, and failing parts. If anything is identified, we will provide a detailed report indicating whether maintenance or repair services should be completed as soon as possible or whether you can wait. With this critical information, you can decide which service(s) you would like to perform. If you need replacement parts, we offer genuine OEM parts straight from the manufacturer.

Summer Maintenance Tips Recommended by Our Certified Volkswagen Technicians

In addition to a vehicle inspection, our certified VW technicians at Tom Wood Volkswagen of Noblesville recommend particular maintenance services to get your vehicle primed for the summer months. These include the following:

  • Air Conditioning System - It may be evident that your air conditioning system is one of the most important factors to your comfort while driving in the heat. It may also come as no surprise that many of our customers put off A/C system maintenance longer than needed. Stop in for an A/C system inspection, and we can let you know why your system isn't performing at peak levels. It may just be that your refrigerant needs to be recharged, or perhaps your cabin air filter is clogged.
  • Automotive Fluid Checks - In addition to having your motor oil changed, we strongly recommend having your other automotive fluids checked and exchanged if needed. The fluids within your vehicle can deteriorate over time and pick up particulates and debris from the systems they lubricate. Therefore, they must be exchanged when this happens to perform as intended. This includes your brake, transmission, and power steering fluid, as well as your coolant.
  • Battery - To make sure you don't get stuck in the heat with a dead car battery, come in for a battery check, and we will run full diagnostics. We can let you know whether a new battery is necessary.
  • Tire Services - Following the colder months, it is common for your tires to be deflated. We can inflate them to an appropriate pressure, as well as check them for damage and wear.
