Volkswagen Group

We have extensive knowledge of Volkswagen and have been looking after the Volkswagen range since the beginning. We have experience with all current and past models from the Mk1 Golf GTi to the latest Golf R32, as well as the closely-related range of Seat and Skoda vehicles.

Servicing

On older vehicles the service schedules are 6000 miles for the lubrication service (oil service) and 12000 for the major service. On later vehicles the service schedules are 10000 for the lubrication service and 20000 for the major service. We cater for and comply with both these schedules. On the latest vehicles (2000 onwards) Volkswagen have decided to use "long-life" service intervals. We have found that that this is not beneficial to the vehicle as the increased time between services causes filters to block and reduces efficiency. In our experience air filters are typically blocked and the engine is not performing with the efficiency that normal service intervals give. We recommend to our customers that they use 10000 mile service intervals on these later models and we can alter your service interval indicator to the 10000 interval period. Even though this gains an extra service in every 30000 miles we can still save you money on the dealer servicing cost and we guarantee you will notice the difference. However we recognise that some customers will want to follow the long-life schedule, and which may be required by a warranty period, and we also offer long-life servicing at very competitive prices compared to dealer costs.
