Certified Volkswagen Winter Maintenance Services

  • HVAC System Inspection: Volkswagen owners in Clearwater, FL, enjoy warm weather throughout the year, but the heat ensures that the HVAC system works overtime. Ensure that your air conditioning is at peak performance and the heater is ready to warm the cabin on cool winter evenings with an HVAC system inspection.
  • Tire Inspection: With heavy rain almost always possible in the Clearwater area, be sure your Volkswagen has optimum traction, braking, and safety with a tire inspection. A certified tire inspection includes a treadwear evaluation, depth measurement, and air pressure adjustment.
  • Brake Inspection: Winter maintenance calls for a thorough 4-wheel brake system inspection, including the fluid, calipers, pads, rotors, and hardware.
  • Battery Testing: Sizzling summer heat leads to rapid battery performance decline, and colder temperatures lead to sluggish electrical performance. Winter maintenance should include testing the battery to ensure peak performance and reliability. Get battery replacement service if cold-cranking amps or reserve capacity are below specifications.
  • Wiper Blades Inspection and Replacement: After severe use through the wet season, be sure to inspect and replace the windshield wiper blades if needed. Telltale signs that wiper blades need replacement service include rubber damage, poor performance signaled by heavy streaking, or over a year since the last replacement.
  • Recommended Maintenance: Seasonal maintenance should include checking the odometer and comparing the mileage to the recommended maintenance intervals detailed in the Volkswagen owner’s manual. Schedule recommended maintenance service if approaching 15,000, 30,000, 60,000, or 90,000 miles.
