Volkswagen Passat Service
Spacious, comfortable and affordable are all words that spring to mind when thinking of the Volkswagen Passat. Often overlooked in favour of more glamorous saloon cars like the BMW 3 Series or the Audi A4, the Passat is the underdog of the family car world.
A robust, technologically competent, and practical model, the Passat has become a Volkswagen stronghold over the years. If you want to keep your Passat strong, however, you'll need to get it serviced regularly.
At Kwik Fit, we have a range of services that will maintain your Volkswagen Passat come rain or shine, so you can drive comfortably and confidently in your car.
Read on to find out more about Kwik Fit's servicing options.
Servicing your Volkswagen Passat
If you regularly use your Passat for long-distance journeys (or have a high mileage), Interim Services are a great between-service option. Every 6,000 miles - or 6 months if sooner - we recommend you book in for an Interim service to give you the peace of mind you deserve about your Passat. Kwik Fit's Interim Service includes an oil change and filter replacement, a visual inspection of your brakes, an exhaust and suspension check, and much more.
For those wanting to maintain their Passat's high-performance levels, we recommend an Engine Oil and Oil Filter Change. This between-service check-up functions as an extra precaution, and includes the following: an engine oil drain, an oil refill in line with manufacturer guidelines, and a replacement oil filter and sump plug washer.
Kwik Fit's Full Service is the most comprehensive service we offer. Functioning as a rigorous annual maintenance programme for your Volkswagen Passat, Full Services mitigate against breakdown risk and are recommended annually, or every 12,000 miles. Full Services include an in-depth engine inspection, an air filter replacement, and a top-up of power steering fluid - on top of everything included in our Interim Service. Book in for a Full Service to not only keep your Volkswagen Passat safe, but help it keep its value over time.
Why not combine servicing with your MOT?
Did you know that you can combine your Service with an annual MOT? Kwik Fit has your best interests at heart, so this process is aimed at saving you money and time. Simply contact your local Kwik Fit centre to find out more or book online today to handle all of your Volkswagen Passat's maintenance needs at once.
Volkswagen Passat Manufacturer Service
Remember when you had to return your car to its dealership to get it serviced within warranty? Since 2002, companies like Kwik Fit have been offering a valid alternative to dealership services in the form of our Manufacturer Service. This provides a service specific to your Passat's age, model, and mileage, and is in line with manufacturer guidelines.
If you're looking for a more convenient way to follow your manufacturer's service schedule while maintaining your Volkswagen Passat's resale value, book a Manufacturer Service today. And don't worry, a stamp from your local Kwik Fit centre in your Passat's logbook won't invalidate any standing warranties you have with Volkswagen.
