Intervals and Scope of the Inspection

Depending on the vehicle equipment and operating conditions, the inspection of your vehicle will either be a fixed service or a flexible service. Whether you have an Golf, Tiguan or another Volkswagen – safety-relevant aspects of your car will be tested and serviced by workshop professionals.

  • A customer stands in front of her blue VW in a workshop


    The sticker in the door pillar or the Service Interval Display in your speedometer – where to find your next service appointment depends on one thing: Is it with or without an oil change?

    When is my vehicle due its next service?

    Our service is divided into:

    • Appointments with an oil change (e.g. Interval Service): In this case, the Service Interval Display or the multimedia system will show the next appointment
    • Appointments without an oil change (e.g. inspection): In this case, the next appointment is found in the door pillar

    By observing these intervals, you can preserve the operational safety and the value of your Volkswagen. You also benefit from our Mobility Guarantees, meaning that the Volkswagen Roadside Assistance (for breakdown and accident) remains free-of-charge when you observe the recommended service units.

    During an inspection, we perform maintenance works in accordance with the inspection schedule and make sure that your vehicle remains road-safe.

    We check 42 test points on your car. The inspection encompasses work on the following components:

    • Chassis

    Care, service and maintenance works can not only serve to retain the value of your car, but also play an important role in operational and road safety.
