Why Should I Replace My Wiper Blades?
As a general rule, wiper blades should be replaced every six months to a year or at the first sign of poor performance. It's also important to keep your wiper blades clean and free from debris. If you use a higher quality brand, you will not have to replace them quite as often. Wiper Blade replacement is often overlooked until it's too late. Between 6-18 months is the average lifespan of wiper blades. It's best to be proactive and replace your wiper blades before they adversely effect your field of vision. Remember, if your Volkswagen is under three years or 36,000 miles, we can replace them with no charge to you under factory warranty. 

Why Are My Brakes Squeaking?
Brakes can squeak for multiple reasons. The most common and least concerning, is moisture and rust that builds up on your brake rotors overnight usually when there's moisture outside, when a car sits overnight for an extended period of time. Usually a few miles of driving will wear away the surface rust and quiet the brakes down with no adverse effects. 
A more concerning cause for brake squeak is when your brake pads wear down to the point of needing replacement. Most brake pads are equipped with a squealer tab, designed to rub the brake rotor and make a squealing noise when the pads have reached the end of their useful life. Beechmont Volkswagen will inspect your brake pad life during our Multi-Point Inspection and recommend brakes before it's too late. 

My "Check Engine" Light Is On, What Should I Do?
From a loose gas cap, to a severe engine issue, there are many reasons why your check engine light can come on. If your check engine light is on solid, and not blinking, it's typically not a reason to panic. It's best to make an appointment at your convenience at Beechmont Volkswagen. 
However, if your check engine light is flashing, that is a sign of a more serious issue. It's recommended that you pull over in a safe location, when it's safe to do so and contact Roadside Assistance, or a similar roadside assistance service as soon as possible. 

How Often Should I Get My Oil Changed?
Your engine is the heart and soul of your Volkswagen. Keeping it properly maintained and lubricated is of the utmost importance. Having your engine oil and filter changed once a year or 10,000 miles will keep your engine running properly for the life of your VW. Maintenance performed by Beechmont Subaru's factory trained technicians will keep your Subaru running at peak performance.

What Should My Tire Tread Depth Be?
Knowing and monitoring your tire tread depth are extremely important to your safety. Handling, acceleration, and stopping power are all dependent on adequate tire tread. When your tire tread reached 5/32" in the rain or snow, or 4/32" during the dry season, your traction is compromised. This is the time to have Beechmont Volkswagen replace your tires and perform a four wheel alignment.

My Low Tire Pressure Light Is On, Why?
The possible causes for your tire pressure light coming on are the following:
• Weather Changes
• Puncture in tire/leaking air Volkswagen is slightly different than most vehicles because we do not have tire pressure sensors in the tires, the reading comes from your ABS Sensors.

What Is The Importance Of My Cabin Air Filter?
A cabin air filter resides in your vehicle's heating and A/C System. The cabin air filter in your vehicle filters out dirt and debris from entering your vehicle. Anything that comes through the heat and A/C system will pass through the filter first. Much like the filter that is in your A/C unit at home, the filter needs to be changed to provide good air quality. We recommend the cabin air filter to be changed every two years or 40,000 miles. Please be sure to look at your vehicle's manual to ensure the exact mileage for changes.
