No-charge scheduled Carefree Maintenance.*
Changing your oil, rotating your tires, topping off the windshield
wiper fluid — do you remember to do all that stuff? Your car does.
Right there in your instrument panel. Both it and your dealer will let
you know when it’s time to schedule your appointment. And for
three years, or 36,000 miles, we’ve got you covered. That’s why
we call it carefree. Come by for a courtesy vehicle check within the
first 90 days, or 6,000 miles, and ask us any questions you have
while we give your Passat a basic checkup. Then, come by every
year, or 10,000 miles, for your remaining scheduled maintenance
checks. It’s that simple.

miles, whichever comes first. Coverage during the term of the new vehicle limited warranty at no additional charge. Some
