With their German engineering and long-standing reputation, you already know that a Volkswagen model is going to deliver an excellent driving experience and impeccable comfort. But can you trust that engineering to hold up long term when you buy a used VW? Like any vehicle, proper maintenance is key and with it, your used Volkswagen should have no trouble standing the test of time.

Used Volkswagen Reliability

The high level of engineering that goes into each Volkswagen model means that these vehicles aren’t just great right out of the box, but they can endure hundreds of thousands of miles when properly cared for. Special care is always taken to ensure that the components in your Volkswagen are ready to stand up to your busy lifestyle, and many VW models can survive for 15 years or more in the right hands. It isn’t at all uncommon to see Volkswagens from 2010 or earlier still cruising around Carmel and Fishers, IN, and that alone is a testament to the longevity of these vehicles.

Used Volkswagen Maintenance

For the most part, your used Volkswagen model should need nothing more than routine maintenance to last well over 200,000 miles. Keep up with your oil changes on schedule and follow the maintenance guide in your owner’s manual to ensure that all components of your VW are checked and maintained. Basic parts like your water pump and brake pads and rotors may need to be replaced at 100,000 miles, but otherwise oil changes and tire rotations should be all that a well-cared for Volkswagen requires to stand the test of time.
