What happens during a VW service? - Our Service Checklist
Lights & Visibility: Front, rear and internal lights are checked to confirm all are in working order. All windows, wipers, mirrors and registration plates checked for faults or weak points.
Interior: Internal controls are checked, including seat belts, horn, hazard lights, air conditioning and other control functions.
Steering & Drive System: We check all joints, gaiters and wheel bearings for strength and function. All shock absorbers and springs are reviewed and tested for effectiveness and friction. A wheel alignment assessment is also carried out.
Braking System: Front & Rear brakes and all associated mechanisms are checked and measured according to safety standards. We want to keep you safe on the road.
Under the Bonnet: An engine inspection is completed to ensure all parts are in total working order, with no faults or leaks present. Air & oil filters, spark plugs and drive belts checked and replaced if required.
Under the Vehicle: Under car trays are removed and transmission thoroughly checked for leaks, faults, rust or corrosion. Oil drained from the engine, and all lines checked for faults before trays are replaced.
Tyres: Wheels, including wheel nuts, are inspected to check for corrosion or weak points. Tyre treads checked, and tyre pressures are adjusted before refitting. Spare wheel and/or inflation kit also checked where appropriate.
Final Checks: Brake fluid and anti-freeze levels are checked. Then the oil is replaced and finally your VW service record is updated.
What type of service does my VW need?
Every VW comes with its unique servicing schedule, which you can find within your handbook.
The intervals will be dependent on vehicle age, annual mileage and what fuel your VW runs on.
You will have a service indicator on your dashboard, which will let you know when your service is due either in date or distance format. Your handbook should also provide the entire service history of your VW, which will show servicing intervals previously used.
If you are still unsure when your next service is due, contact our team today, and we can help you determine which service plan works best for you.
Why should I service my VW?
Safety: Regular checks mean we can identify potential issues that, if left unresolved, could cause a breakdown or, worse, an accident.
Reliability: Our VW Service Galway is there to provide driving reassurance and maintain your VW as the manufacturer intended. So you know that you can rely on your VW every day.
Longevity: Servicing will keep you moving for longer. Regular maintenance will keep you enjoying your VW for as long as possible and reducing the chance of nasty surprises.
Savings: Finding and fixing a fault can save you money on repair bills as well as reducing running costs. Ongoing maintenance can also maximise fuel efficiency, offering you further savings.
How will I be kept informed on the progress of my VW service?
After we complete your VW service Galway inspection, we will contact you to present our findings and recommendations.
The decision is then in your hands. We will never pressure you to have work on the car that you don’t feel is necessary, and you will have been stung by hidden costs for work you didn’t approve.
Our honest approach is one of the reasons our clients keep coming back.

It’s absolute easy to recommend Donnellans - John and the team got me out of a bind so quickly this week with a flat tire and the service is top notch.

We’ve used them for all our car needs since moving from Dublin 5 years ago. Very... Read More

He then took the car in, gave it the once over, advised me of what needed doing and carried out the necessary... Read More
