Tire Inspection

A thorough tire inspection is recommended for fall maintenance, promoting optimal traction, responsive handling, and safety. Certified Volkswagen tire inspections include a treadwear evaluation, sidewall damage check, tread depth measurement, and inflation adjustment. Fall is often an excellent opportunity to change to winter tread tires or get a tire replacement service.

Battery Inspection with Electrical Testing

Fall maintenance should always include a battery inspection with electrical testing because extreme heat is the #1 battery threat, and colder conditions lead to sluggish performance. Certified Volkswagen battery inspections include a physical condition assessment, looking for case disfigurement, leaking fluid, and corrosion. An electrical test confirms that the reserve capacity and cold-cranking amps are at factory specifications. Batteries with the mentioned physical defects or failed electrical testing should be replaced immediately.

Windshield Wiper Blades

Windshield wiper blades are a safety component with a relatively short life and are susceptible to severe use and changing conditions. Wiper blades' rubber quickly becomes brittle in Florida's summer heat and are used frequently throughout the rainy summer. We recommend checking the windshield wiper blades and replacing them if they have damaged rubber, leave excessive streaking, or are over one year old.

Air Conditioning Performance Check

The air conditioning system experiences severe summer use in Melbourne, Palm Bay, and Satellite Bay, FL, and might be experiencing reduced performance. We recommend that fall maintenance includes an air conditioning inspection that checks susceptible components and promotes reliable performance all year. Common restorative air conditioning system services for Volkswagens in Florida include A/C recharge and cabin air filter replacement.
