As any experienced Volkswagen owner or lessee around Ripley WV knows, regularly scheduled routine maintenance is vital to your vehicle's long-term health. At Pioneer Volkswagen of Parkersburg, we employ a friendly and knowledgeable team of factory-certified technicians that can help every driver in the region stick to the all-important recommended maintenance schedule.

Simply put, if you want to keep your ride running like the day you bought it while hoping to maximize its sale or trade-in value at your next upgrade, you'll want to make sure you adhere to the 10,000-mile interval.

Rule of Thumb – The 10,000-Mile Interval

Every vehicle in the Volkswagen lineup sticks to one simple rule of thumb – the 10,000-mile interval. What this means is very straightforward. For every 10,000 miles you drive, you'll need to bring your vehicle in to the service center at Pioneer Volkswagen of Parkersburg for routine maintenance. Doing so will simultaneously keep you safe and maintain your Volkswagen's value.

Your initial service visit will be fairly basic, consisting of:

  • Oil and oil filter replacement
  • Tire rotation
  • Airbag system inspection
  • Headlight cleaning system inspection
  • Wiper blade inspection
  • AdBlue fluid check

20K, 60K, and 100K-Mile Interval Check-Ups

After your first 10,000-mile check-up, every service interval will consist of the same procedures, but add a few more interchangeable checks for added layers of protection. For example, at your 20,000, 60,000, and 100,000-mile service appointments, you'll get all the service checks previously mentioned plus inspections on the battery, tires, and brakes as well as replacements for the fuel and dust and pollen filters. You'll also get an expiration date check on the tire filler bottle.

30K, 50K, 70K, 90K, and 110K-Mile Check-Ups

At these mile intervals, an inspection of the brake discs is performed as well as a fluid replacement in both the brake and clutch unit. These checks replace the added maintenance performed at the 20K, 60K, and 100K-mile interval and are paired with your normal 10K-mile procedures.

40K, 80K, and 120K-Mile Check-Ups

These are your most intensive service intervals, as they represent the widest gap in mileage. On top of your routine 10K-mile maintenance checks, you'll get comprehensive inspections of:

  • Engine
  • Tires
  • Brakes
  • Electrical components
  • CV joints
  • Underbody sealant
  • Battery
  • Coolant
  • Exhaust

Other services performed at this interval include another fuel filter and dust and pollen filter change and well as a fluid and filter change for the DSG transmission. Marietta OH drivers will also get a tire filler bottle replacement in the mobility kit as well as an expiration date check.

Extended Warranty and Protection Plans are Available

New Volkswagen warranties run for six years or 72,000 miles, but if you're looking for coverage into the later stages of your vehicle's life cycle, you can purchase an extension. Volkswagen's Vehicle Service Protection program offers an optional extension plan that pushes out the warranty to ten years or 120,000 miles.

Other benefits of this plan include:

  • Nationwide service at all Volkswagen dealers or authorized service providers
  • 24-hour roadside assistance
  • Towing and rental reimbursement
