The cost of new cars continue to rise every year, and, as the vehicles become more technologically advanced, they also become more expensive to maintain. There can be unforeseen repairs with any vehicle, but a well maintained vehicle will always be more reliable and will save you money in the long run by running more efficiently. So when the day does come when you want to sell, having service records to show will certainly give you top dollar over the other vehicles out there. There are many vehicles in our service fleet that have over 350k miles and counting,with just regularly scheduled maintenance. Thankfully, VW and Audi have mileage based service schedules that are easy to follow and encompass your entire vehicle.
Many times when a vehicle comes in for a rough running condition, we have to start with the basics in our diagnosis. The basic service items such as spark plugs, air filters, and fuel filters are usually the culprit and we find that many of these items are pushed past their service life. Even worse, some of these items, if not taken care of, can damage other components in the system. For example, a clogged fuel filter can certainly cause extra strain on your fuel pump, or spark plugs not changed regularly can cause misfire issues that can damage coil packs and expensive catalytic converters.
This is where we come in!
Each time your vehicle is in, we give a thorough visual inspection and a check up to see just how these items are doing. We will make suggestions based on the VW/Audi recommended service schedule to keep your car running its best. No one likes going to the doctor but in many cases, they can identify warning signs that if left untreated can turn into a major catastrophe. Sounds a lot like what we do!
