How Our Volkswagen Service Center Keeps Your VW Running

Now that snow is no longer in the forecast and we’re consistently getting warmer days, it’s safe to say that the worst of winter is officially behind us.

With spring well underway, we can officially put those heavy coats and jackets in storage until the holiday season later this year. We can also look forward to another season of Royals baseball and more outdoor gatherings. Warmer weather also means taking care of some spring housekeeping items, with both your home and your vehicle.

The same way that you winterize your car, you also need to prepare it for the spring and summer. The following are the top items that you should get taken care of at your local Volkswagen service center.

Tire Maintenance

As you probably already know, large drops in temperature cause the PSI levels in your tires to drop. Most people end up paying at least a couple visits to the local air machine just to keep their tires in check. Now that spring is here, it’s a great time to give those tires a fresh look to ensure that they will make it through the spring and summer.

Not only should you check to make sure that the air pressure levels are good in each tire, but you should also check the tread as well. Of course, you can use the old Lincoln’s head on the penny trick to give you a general idea of how much tread you have left. However, our recommendation is that you bring in your vehicle to the Volkswagen service center to get your tires inspected by a professional. If it’s been a while since you’ve had them rotated, we recommend getting that service done as well.

A Spring Deep Clean

Winter weather here in Lee’s Summit means that there’s more sand, salt, and slush on the ground than normal. Since these elements are destructive to the car, it’s critical that you keep the exterior clean to decrease the chances of erosion. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure that you’re keeping up with interior maintenance as well. Salt and dirty snow can do nasty things to your car’s interior.

Our recommendation? Get your VW vehicle professionally detailed. This will remove the salt and grime that you encountered over the winter and give your vehicle a showroom finish. Detailing is also a great service for those who have messy kids who tend to spill food and drinks.

A/C Check

If you haven’t done it yet, chances are that you’re going to be turning on your air conditioning sooner rather than later. Spring is the perfect time to get your A/C checked out to make sure that everything is in good working order and get your freon levels topped off.

Trust us, you don’t want to wait until one of those 90-degree high humidity days only to find out that your air conditioning unit can’t keep up.

Check Your Battery

Nothing is harder on a car’s battery than winter. When the temperatures drop to freezing levels, that means that your battery is having to work extra hard to ensure that your vehicle can perform normally. Now that warmer weather is back, it’s a good time to get your car battery checked out to verify it’s in good condition.

If your battery is faulty or reaching the end of its lifespan, you can always get a new one installed at the Volkswagen service center.

Do You Have a New VW? Don’t Forget, You Have Carefree Coverage!

Just a friendly reminder, if you own a 2021 or 2022 VW vehicle, then that means you are under the Carefree Coverage warranty plan. It covers many of the routine maintenance services that your vehicle requires at no additional charge. The coverage breaks down as follows:

2 yrs. Service – Scheduled Carefree Maintenance (2 years or 20,000 miles)
3 yrs. Help – Roadside Assistance (3 years or 36,000 miles)
4 yrs. Coverage – New Vehicle Limited Warranty (4 years or 50,000 miles)
5 yrs. Access – Car-Net Remote Access

When you visit the VW service center, your Carefree Coverage will appear in our records making the process simple and easy.
