Benefits of Getting Consistent Mechanical Check-Ups

Improved Reliability

If you don’t take good care of your car today, it won’t be there for you in the future.

While this means oil changes and tire rotations, it also entails having routine check-ups performed by our expert Volkswagen vehicle service center at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago.

Higher Resale Value

If you’re looking to sell your Volkswagen at some point in the future, you’ll want to keep up on routine service and maintenance.

This will help to ensure that it continues to run in optimal condition. Selling your vehicle will not only be easier down the road, but much more profitable!

Better Fuel Economy

First, make sure your tire pressure is set to the right levels. This prevents your car from expending unnecessary energy and fuel while moving.

If your air filter is clogged or your fuel lines are leaking, your vehicle’s fuel economy can also be negatively affected by up to 20%.

A used Volkswagen is an increasingly attractive option, with new models selling for ever-increasing prices.

If you are in the market for a pre-owned Volkswagen vehicle, here are five things that you should do:

  1. Do your Research: Pay close attention to Consumer Reports and auto reviews, but also take a specialized mechanic to thoroughly examine the car.
  2. Take a Long Test Drive: You’re judging your comfort level with the vehicle. Do the power windows all work? Does it make any odd or loud noises? You have to be comfortable with your ride before you put down the cash to purchase.
  3. Get a Used Car Inspection: A mechanic that specializes in Volkswagen inspections can identify potential problems and pitfalls with the used vehicle that you are considering. When you take it for a test drive, come through Milito’s for a comprehensive used car inspection.
  4. Go Certified Pre-Owned: The certification provides a long-term warranty which is only offered after a rigorous 100+ point test fully resolving any visual or technical flaws. It’s also factory-backed with a 2-year, unlimited mile powertrain coverage and 24-hour roadside assistance.
  5. Ensure Proper Paperwork: Go over the previous car purchase invoice, loan history (if applicable), tax receipt, Registration Certificate, etc. before getting the insurance transferred to your name.

The History of Volkswagen

Volkswagen was founded and operated in 1934 by the German Labour Front, a Nazi organization, with designs by engineer Ferdinand Porsche. The original factory, mostly destroyed in WWII, was rebuilt under British supervision and served a huge part in rebuilding the German economy.

The 60’s era of peace and love found the VW Beetle and minibuses embraced by surfers, hippies, campers and anyone looking for a small, reliable machine.

Volkswagens have a long reputation for being both cool and cute, simple and sturdy. Staying true to their roots they have maintained a style of cheap, durable, economical, and comfortable line of vehicles.

Competitors have tried but none have managed to replicate the factors that have made Volkswagen such a success, or find the secret sauce behind their vehicle charisma and desirability.
