Volkswagen Jetta Recommended Maintenance Schedule

2023 Volkswagen Jetta

The Volkswagen Jetta is one of the stalwarts of the brand. It gives you excellent fuel economy yet a powerful engine. Maintaining your new vehicle in its best shape for every Monroe drive means bringing your car in for Volkswagen Jetta service at least once a year. We recommend following the VW Jetta maintenance schedule for the best results. 

Discover everything about the VW Jetta service intervals with our comprehensive guide!

What Is the Volkswagen Jetta Maintenance Schedule?

Your new VW Jetta service intervals occur every 10,000 miles. Older Volkswagen models might have different maintenance requirements. Check your owner’s manual for the correct VW Jetta maintenance schedule. However, world-class engineering for newer vehicles means longer VW Jetta service intervals, lowering overall ownership costs.

Every 10,000 miles is also the VW Jetta oil change interval, so expect a full synthetic oil change every 10,000 miles of driving. The exception is if you frequently drive in less-than-ideal conditions in Concord. If you repeatedly hit the brakes hard, you might need new tires or new brakes sooner than expected.

Below is the VW Jetta maintenance schedule you should follow.
