Volkswagen are the founders of many of the German brands we know and love – including Audi and Skoda – so it’s only right that you choose an experienced VW Worthing garage for your service and repair.
Servicing your car regularly is beneficial for the stamina and safety of your car – we find any smaller faults early on before they become larger, expensive issues. With Bennetts, you never sweat the small stuff. We’re here to ensure your car receives professional care, saving you time and money.
Choose Bennetts for your specialised Volkswagen Worthing service.
Why choose Bennetts?
Bennetts have been servicing VW cars and vans in West Sussex for almost a decade – and bring over 25 years’ experience to our garage. We practise a customer-focused approach and provide excellent facilities – making us the leading independent garage for German cars in Littlehampton.
With our large parts inventory, we offer a complete service for all German makes and models.
Why do I need a service?
When it comes to driving a reliable family vehicle, Volkswagen is the name you trust. So, shouldn’t you trust the garage which services it?
The key benefits of our VW Worthing service include:
Value: A regular service maintains your vehicle’s quality, which is always great for vintage models. And, a well-presented VW gains a higher resale value, should you ever choose to sell on.
Reliability: Whether you’re rocking the Beetle or touring in the classic campervan, avoiding breakdowns is a must. Book your VW service in Worthing today, and stop the little faults from turning into large repairs.
Safety: The risk of breakdown increases with every service you avoid. When you book your service with Bennetts, we inspect your car to ensure all the mechanics and systems are sound. With our service, you’re not caught out by any hidden faults and pass your MOT with flying colours.
Savings: A high-spec vehicle is a good investment – but repeat repairs are a surefire way to lose value for money. Not only does a regular VW Worthing service save you money on repairs – it guarantees better fuel efficiency, so you get more bang for your buck.
How do I know if one is due?
How often your car needs servicing depends on your use. On average, we recommend:
- an interim service every 6 months or 6,000 miles
- a full service every 12 months or 12,000 miles
- a major service every 24 months or 24,000 miles
What happens during an VW service? What do you check/replace?
Lighting & Visibility – Front and rear lights are rigorously checked for optimal performance. Glass, wipers, and exterior mirrors are reviewed for chips, faults, and weak areas. Registration plates are maintained for clarity and sturdiness.
Under Bonnet – A full under bonnet inspection ensures there are no leaks, and all components are in working order. Where required, we replace the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, and drive belts.
Vehicle Interior – Your interior is as important as your exterior. We check: Seat belts are to standard with no flaws in the material or mechanism. Rear-view mirror reviewed for clarity and control. Checking the horn, hazard lighting, and vehicle controls are in working order. Full system analysis, including air conditioning.
Steering, Drive & Suspension – All joints, gaiters (protective sleeves on vehicle parts), and wheel bearings are extensively inspected, including wheel alignment. Front and rear shock absorbers and road springs are tested.
Braking – Both front and rear brake components are checked and measured, allowing us to accurately report on their service life.
Under Vehicle – The vehicle under-trays are removed and the engine oil is drained. The transmission is checked for leaks.
Tyre Inspection – All wheels and tyres are inspected for any issues. Tyre pressures are adjusted prior to refitting. We’ll also check your spare wheel or inflation kit if appropriate for your vehicle.
Final Checks – Assessment of brake fluid and antifreeze test – crucial for road safety, especially during winter months. Filling your engine with new oil – this is vital for engine cleanliness and performance.
How will I be kept informed on the progress of my VW service?
During a service, we take note of any minor or moderate repairs we recommend completing urgently, and why.
Honesty is our ethos – we conduct business with fairness and precision. We never replace a component until you’re happy to go ahead with the fix.
