10,000 Mile Service Interval

The first Volkswagen Jetta service interval to look out for comes at 10,000 miles of driving your daily Edmond commute. It may surprise many to know that this is the first time your new Jetta will need an oil change, as this vehicle is designed by Volkswagen to make the most of its precious engine oil. Here’s what all goes into a 10k miles service:

  • Oil and filter change
  • Brake pad inspection
  • Brake disc inspection
  • Service interval reset

20,000 Mile Service Interval

Another Volkswagen Jetta oil change takes place at 20k miles, along with an inspection of some of the other core components of your vehicle that could show signs of premature wear if something is amiss. The 20k miles Volkswagen Jetta maintenance interval appointment would tend to the following:

  • Engine compartment and transmission inspection
  • Battery inspection
  • Fluid level adjustments (brake fluid and coolant)
  • Tire pressure and TPMS inspection

When your Norman drives bring you to the 40k mile mark, it’ll by default be time for a couple components to be replaced, including spark plugs. And yes, the Volkswagen Jetta oil change is included as part of this appointment as well! Here’s what all you can expect from the 40k mile service mark:

  • Dust and pollen filter replacement
