Maintenance Tips

Make the most of everything your Volkswagen has to offer with helpful tips and advice to keep you motoring happy.

Activate your Cruise Control

That cruise control is best used on the open highway and can even improve fuel economy in certain conditions.

New Car Run-In Tips

When you purchase a brand-new vehicle, the first 1,000 km or so are a “run-in” period, during which gentle practices help your engine perform best in the long run.

Tire Pressure

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System helps maintain optimal safety, performance and fuel economy because it continuously monitors tire pressure and alerts you when it's too low.

Smart Key

Replacing a transponder key can be costly. Coding a replacement key for your vehicle requires specialized equipment available only to your VW Dealer and to certain independent repair facilities and qualified locksmiths.


Connect your Bluetooth-equipped smartphone and take calls, listen to music and more, hands-free.

Windshield Wipers

Did you know that when you turn off the wipers, they never rest on the same edge twice in a row? The edges take turns. That helps reduce wiper wear and increases wiper life.

Fuel Efficiency

You have chosen a fuel-efficient vehicle to meet your everyday needs. Follow these helpful tips to achieve additional savings and reduce your impact on the environment.

Road-Trip Ready

A multi-point inspection from your Volkswagen Certified Technician will ensure a smooth trip from start to finish.
