When it comes to auto service, we frequently get asked many questions relating to proper procedures and best practices so we are here to answer any of your questions.

How Often Should I Get An Oil Change?

At our auto repair service center, we believe getting your oil changed frequently and on-time is imperative to the longevity of your vehicle. Other service centers will agree that drivers should get their oil changed every 5,000 miles to 7,000 miles. This is the equivalent to about every 6 months. We always suggest that you refer to your owner’s manual, which will cover the recommended interval for your specific make and model. If you are purchasing a new Volkswagen from us, you will find that many of our newer models will tell you specifically when they are due for an oil change or service. Please keep in mind that an oil change acts as a lubricant for many components under the hood, so keeping your engine clean and unclogged will keep it operating better.

When Should I Replace My Brake Pads?

Brakes typically tend to see the most wear and tear around 20,000 to 30,000 miles. However, there are many factors that are considered when gauging this number. At our Volkswagen service center, we continuously tell our customers to look for specific signs that will indicate it may be time to get your brakes replaced. If you feel like it is becoming increasingly more difficult to come to a stop, or you hear rubbing, screeching or grinding noises when braking, be sure to schedule a service appointment with us as soon as possible.

When Should My Tires Be Rotated And How Often?

Your tires definitely get a fair amount of usage over time since they are primarily what is making contact with the pavement. For this reason, tires are automatically subject to wear and tear. Our service center recommends getting your tires rotated routinely around the 6-month mark. This would be about every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. By bringing your vehicle to Spitzer Volkswagen Amherst, we can easily rotate your 4 tires to ensure they remain balanced throughout the year.

How Often Should I Check My Vehicle’s Fluid Levels?

Checking your vehicle’s fluid levels are another way to prolong the health of your car, truck or SUV. Most of our customers remember the importance of checking their engine oil periodically, but we want to remind you of some other fluids that are just as important. These include, transmission fluid, engine coolant, brake fluid and power-steering fluid. If you have any questions on the variety of fluids to check or where to locate them on your vehicle, visit our service center today and we will be happy to assist!
