VW CC Maintenance Schedule

The fine Volkswagen CC you bought from Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore Port Charlotte will last longer and provide you many miles of worry-free driving if you keep up with the recommended maintenance schedule. Fortunately for Florida drivers, winter’s rough weather is not likely to be a problem, so you are spared from worries about having snow tires installed or winterizing your radiator. Summer’s hot weather, however, can take a toll on any vehicle. Knowing the pattern of your Volkswagen CC will make service appointments easier.
Call Us with any questions!

Annual Issues

Whether you drive your VW CC 15,000 miles a year or only 1,500 miles a year, some maintenance is due annually:

  • Replace windshield wiper blades—though, with Florida’s heavy thunderstorms you should watch for tell-tale wear and replace them more often if needed
  • Rotate and balance tires—this helps the tires wear evenly
  • Get the front end of your CC aligned to minimize uneven tire wear

At 5,000 Miles

The first major maintenance appointment you should make with Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore Port Charlotte will be when your VW CC reaches 5,000 miles. At that point, your trusted Volkswagen mechanic will do all this:

  • Replace the engine oil and filter—Volkswagen recommends synthetic oil for long engine life
  • Complete lubrication
  • Check and refill all fluids—this includes steering fluid, transmission fluid, radiator water and additive, distilled water for the battery, brake fluid, and windshield wiper fluid
  • Rotate tires—your Volkswagen CC’s front tires will be moved to the back, with the back ones moving up to allow for even wear
  • Visual and tactile inspection of belts for wear and tension
  • Visual inspection of hoses and hose clamps
  • Multi-point inspection

This service interval is repeated every 10,000 miles after the first 5,000 miles, so expect this at 15,000 miles, 25,000 miles, and so on. A car as well-built as the VW CC seldom has any serious problems at so few miles, but if you find something that concerns you, make sure to inform the Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore Port Charlotte service manager, so the mechanics can check on the odd sound or unexpected movement.

10,000 Mile Service

This interval will repeat at 50,000 and 70,000 miles and include all these checks, some of which were done at 5,000 miles:

  • Oil change—synthetic oil is better than regular oil
  • Tire rotation and inspection, including the spare
  • Fuel injection service
  • Check and refill fluids
  • Inspect front and rear suspension—this becomes more important as mileage increases
  • Brake check and adjustment
  • Inspect the automatic shift lock system
  • Hooking up the on-board diagnostic system to the service department’s computer to identify any problems

20,000 Mile Checkup

At 20,000 miles your Volkswagen CC is now beginning to hum like a fine watch, with all parts working smoothly. This service checkup repeats at 60,000 and 100,000 miles, and of course includes some items done earlier:

  • Oil change
  • Rotate tires
  • Brake check and adjustment
  • Check and refill all fluids
  • Inspect automatic shift lock system
  • Replace cabin air filter
  • Replace engine air filter
  • Inspect underside of engine for leaking fluids
  • Check tire air pressure
  • Inspect exhaust and cooling systems
  • Inspect and adjust lights
  • Multi-point inspection

40,000 Mile Service Appointment

This interval repeats at 80,000 and 120,000 miles (and, of course, at 160,000 miles and beyond). It includes these checks:

  • Oil change
  • Tire rotation
  • Check and replenish fluids
  • Tire inspection, including spare
  • Inspect automatic shift lock system
  • Inspect airbags
  • Inspect front and rear suspension
  • Multi-point inspection
