2012 Volkswagen Beetle: 10,000-Mile Service

January 18, 2013

2012 Volkswagen Beetle

When the odometer turned 10,000 miles we knew it was time to get our 2012 Volkswagen Beetle to the dealer for routine maintenance. The Beetle requests routine service at 10,000-mile intervals. And thanks to Volkswagen Carefree Maintenance, it doesn't cost a thing.

We were late on this one. But because of our preemptive, and out-of-pocket, oil change at 3,000 miles, the dealer counted this as our 10k and no monetary penalty was applied.

Since we arrived late in the day without an appointment, we weren't surprised when the dealer asked to keep our car overnight. Our phone rang first thing the next morning to inform us the car was ready. This visit was simple and straightforward, how we like it.
