Intervals and scope of the inspection

Service is due?"

Depending on the vehicle equipment and operating conditions, the inspection of your Volkswagen will either be a fixed service or a flexible service. Whether you have an up!, Polo, Golf, Passat, Tiguan or another Volkswagen – all safety-relevant aspects of your Volkswagen will be tested, brought to your attention and serviced by workshop professionals. The vehicle diagnosis detects any defects in the vehicle electronics.

When is it time for your next service?

An inspection includes all maintenance work that is necessary to keep your Volkswagen safe, both in terms of operational safety and traffic safety. Find out here exactly what is examined during the inspection, from the electronics, engine and gears, to the running gear and the vehicle body.

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

Our service appointments make a distinction between:

  • Appointments with an oil change (e.g. Interval Service) are indicated on the service interval display
  • Appointments without an oil change (e.g. Inspection Service) are listed in the door pillar
