Drivers in Newmarket, Ontario, can read below to learn more about their vehicle’s maintenance schedule and see how they can keep their Volkswagen Jetta, Volkswagen Tiguan, or other model in tip-top shape.

Oil Change

16,000 Kilometers

The first maintenance interval will come at the 16,000-kilometer mark. At this point in time, your VW will need to have its oil changed. Similarly, the oil filter will also need to be replaced. This will position the engine to run smoothly, providing the necessary lubrication and cleaning.

At this time, you’ll also want to have the brake pads checked and the tires rotated.

32,000 Kilometers

After another 16,000 kilometers, the next maintenance interval will roll around again. At this time, you’ll want to repeat the oil change and the tire rotation, as these are needed routinely.

At this kilometer mark, several new maintenance suggestions will surface too. This includes the inspection of several major systems, including:

  • Brake system
  • Cooling system
  • Engine
  • Lighting system
  • And more

At this point in time, the sunroof will also need attention, if your VW has one. It’ll need to have the drains cleaned and rails greased.


64,000 Kilometers

After driving for a few more years, your model will reach the 64,000-kilometer mark. At this point, your VW will need more major maintenance. For example, at this time, it will need to have its exhaust system inspected. The exhaust is responsible for carrying emissions out of your vehicle, dispersing them away from the cabin. This inspection will prove important, as it is critical to your in-cabin safety.

There are a number of other critical services that you will want to seek out at this time too.

96,000 Kilometers

The air filter in your VW is also important in that it keeps the air in the cabin clean. At 96,000 kilometers, the air filter will need to be replaced and have the screen and housing cleaned. This will ensure the air entering your vehicle is crisp and clear.

128,000 Kilometers

A very important maintenance need will arise around 128,000 kilometers. At this point, the spark plugs will need to be replaced. The spark plugs are responsible for “sparking” the combustion process that allows the engine to start.
