When to Service a VW Tiguan

The maintenance schedule of the VW Tiguan is made up of service intervals that come up every 10,000 miles. To give you a better idea of what to expect, we’re going to break down some of the most important intervals—and the maintenance that’s involved at each one.

10,000 Miles

Oil ChangeWhen your odometer hits 10,000 miles, you may still be getting to know your new ride. But there are a few key services that need to be performed at this point, and at every proceeding 10,000-mile mark.

At this interval, we will change out the oil and the oil filter. We’ll also check the brake pads to make sure they’re wearing evenly and giving you the stopping power you need.

20,000 Miles

At 20,000 miles, you’ll know your VW Tiguan pretty well, and at this stage of the maintenance schedule, there are a few important services you’ll want to have done.

First, it’s important to change out the brake fluid, and inspect other fluid levels. We will also check your headlights, wiper blades, and tire wear patterns. We may also suggest checking the battery voltage.

Inspecting Vehicle

40,000 Miles

When you hit 40,000 miles, there are going to be a few more inspections to add to the list of those completed at previous intervals.

We’ll inspect all the powertrain components, including the transmission and the drive shaft. Components like your shock absorbers and coil springs will also need to be inspected to ensure you’re getting a smooth ride.

60,000 Miles

Once your odometer hits 60,000 miles, your VW Tiguan is really becoming an experienced road warrior.

At this point, you may need to get some key components—like brake pads and tires—replaced. If you’re driving in ideal conditions, however, they may still have more to give. Schedule a service appointment, and our team will tell you if it’s time for their replacement.

100,000 Miles

Mechanic at Service CenterNow, your VW Tiguan is a veteran. It may seem like your SUV has seen it all, but if you continue to follow the scheduled maintenance, it will continue to serve you well for years to come.

At this interval, there’s one more major service that will need to be accomplished. You will probably need to have the timing belt replaced. This will help ensure that every component in your engine continues to move in sync.

VW Tiguan Service Tips

There are also a few maintenance tasks that you can tackle right from home. One of these is keeping your tires properly inflated. Check your tire pressure every 3,500 miles, and adjust to the manufacturer-recommended PSI. This will help promote even tread wear.

You can also keep an eye and an ear out for potential warning signs that your VW Tiguan may give you. For example, a loud knocking in the engine may mean you’re due for an oil change. If you hear a high-pitched screech when coming to a stop, however, your brake pads may need to be replaced.
