It’s car care month here at Fields Volkswagen of Daytona, and that means that we’re dedicated to making sure our vehicles are running smoothly during the spring and summer seasons. Car care is essential to keeping your car running smoothly for years to come; whether you have a new 2019 Volkswagen Atlas or not.

When it comes to caring for your car, there are a few areas that you should routinely keep an eye on. As your Daytona Beach, FL Volkswagen dealership, we want to highlight a few of these key areas so that you can do your part to give back to your vehicle during car care month.

One of the most important – and often overlooked – areas is your engine oil. You’ve likely heard that you should be changing your oil about every 7,000 miles or roughly twice a year. So, why is clean engine oil necessary? It’s simple really. Oil performs multiple tasks and making sure that you’re changing your oil regularly is much cheaper than replacing your engine. Oil not only lubricates the various parts of your engine, but it also keeps it from overheating and breaking down. When you neglect to get your oil changed, you risk damaging your engine.

The next area you want to keep an eye on is your tires. Tires should be rotated about twice a year, and you can rotate them when you get your oil changed. While we offer service and parts specials here at your Daytona Volkswagen dealership, we know that tires aren’t cheap. That’s why rotating them and making sure you keep proper tire pressure is essential.

Lastly, you’ll want to make sure you change your air filter regularly. A dirty air filter is both bad for you and your engine, reducing your miles per gallon and endangering your engine’s health.

Luckily, here at Fields Volkswagen of Daytona, we have a state-of-the-art Volkswagen service center. We’re more than equipped to help you during car care month. Visit us today or schedule your next service online to care for your Volkswagen model this April.
