Getting regular car service is one of the most important aspects of owning a Volkswagen vehicle. VW manufactures some of the most durable and longest lasting vehicles in the industry, but that comes with the expectation that the driver will be performing regular maintenance, as outlined by the manufacturer.

It just so happens that April is National Car Care Month, and here at Heritage Volkswagen Catonsville, our mechanics are celebrating by giving tune-ups and routine service tasks. Here is why scheduling maintenance is so important.

The Importance of Regular Car Maintenance 

If you want to keep your car running the way it did when you first drove it off the lot of our Baltimore, MD Volkswagen dealership, regular maintenance is essential. What are some of the benefits of properly maintaining your vehicle?


Getting regular service check-ups on your car will give it a longer life. Ideally, the mechanics will troubleshoot future issues before they even occur, which increases the life of your car. Some car parts are only intended to last a certain amount of miles, and a mechanic will be able to tell you when it is time to replace them.


Another benefit of regular maintenance is that it increases the safety of you and your family inside the cabin. For instance, if the tires are not inflated to the recommended pressure, there are safety risks to anybody inside the vehicle as well to others sharing the road.


Of course, maintaining your car will cost you some money, but in the long run, you will likely end up spending less. Repairs and replacement of car parts that goes along with a lack of proper maintenance can be costly.
