This is a general plan of what your Volkswagen's service schedule would be like, although your specific vehicle may differ. Here at GMW we feel that VW stretches some of there maintenance intervals too long such as timing belt replacement and automatic transmission services. GMW recommends timing belt replacements between 60k and 70k miles, transmission fluid flushes with our BG transmission flush machine at 40k miles. And another important BG service that will help improve fuel mileage and retain factory performance would be our fuel/air induction service.
