2018 VW Tiguan Maintenance Schedule
The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is an impressive compact SUV that’s fun to drive around the Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and North Port areas. In order to keep enjoying this vehicle for as long as possible, we here at Port Charlotte Volkswagen recommend getting the proper maintenance at the right mileage intervals.
Below is a guide for the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan maintenance. While there’s some sort of maintenance that’s required every 10,000 miles, we’ll go over the significant services you’ll need to have done. Read about them below, then reach out to us with any questions.
The 10,000-mile mark is where you’ll have your first major service done to your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. You’ll need the following performed:
- Change the engine oil and oil filter.
- Have the brake pads checked.
- Check the function of the windshield washers, headlight-cleaning system, and wiper blades.
- Check the fluid level and add fluid, if necessary.
- Reset the service interval display, if applicable.
Except for the brake pads, you’ll need to have the above services done every 10,000 miles.
40,000 & 50,000 Miles
The 40,000-mile mark is the next major service interval. Along with the above services, you’ll need to have the following worked on:
- Replace the dust and pollen filter.
- Check the battery for proper voltage, cleanliness, and corrosion.
- Inspect the brake system and shock absorber for leaks and damage.
- Check the thickness of the brake pads, brake disc condition, and brake fluid level.
- Check the coolant level and the power steering fluid level.
- Inspect the exhaust system for any possible damage or leaks.
At 50,000 miles, you’ll need to have the above maintenance done, plus have your brake pads inspected. They’ll need to be checked for proper thickness, and the condition of the front and rear brake discs will also need to be looked at.
In addition to the services listed above, your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan will need the following maintenance items completed when it hits 60,000 miles:
- Replace and clean the housing of the air filter element and snow filter.
- Have the tires inspected.
- Check the tread depth, condition wear pattern, and pressure of all tires, including the spare.
Congratulations on keeping your Volkswagen Tiguan in such great shape! Now’s the point where you’ll have a major look at your SUV. The only thing you won’t need to have done at this stage is checking the brake pads (that’ll be done at the 110,000-mile mark). This means your Volkswagen Tiguan will need everything above performed, plus these additional services:
- Visually check the body of your vehicle for any corrosion.
- Replace the spark plugs.
- Check the CV joints for any leaks or damage.
- Check the operation of front and rear lights, turn signals, and hazard warning lights.
- Check the headlight adjustment as well.
- Inspect the transmission, final drive, drive shaft boots, and exhaust system for any leaks or damage.
- Check the condition of the ribbed V-belt, if applicable.
- Check, clean, and lubricate the sunroof and panoramic sunroof, if applicable.
