The answer depends on what you're driving. Since it can be different for every vehicle, it is best to refer to your Owner's Manual for service intervals and maintenance information for changing your timing belt.

How should I clean the touchscreen panel in my vehicle?

Fingerprints. We don't like them either. The best way to clean the touchscreen surface of your vehicle would be using an anti-static cleaning cloth. Just make sure that you switch off your vehicle before you do, so you don't accidentally change any settings that you've made prior.

Good question! It is important that the engine oil used in your vehicle conforms to our specifications. To find out what engine oil specification is recommended for your vehicle, please see your Owner's Manual.

Timing is everything when it comes to scheduled maintenance. The recommended interval for the fuel filter can be found in the maintenance booklet of your Owner's Manual under the "Service schedule" section.

For owners

I'm going to be driving abroad – do you have any tips?

Inform your insurance company that you will be travelling abroad. It is also a good idea to check what breakdown cover you have in place and ensure that you have the company's contact details with you.

Here is a handy check list of things to remember:

  • Credit/Debit card
  • Contact your motor insurer before taking your vehicle outside of Singapore
  • Carry your vehicle registration document and your driving license - including your paper counterpart if it is a photocard license
  • Spare set of keys
  • Passport
  • Statement of insurance or booking reference
  • International driving permit (where necessary)
  • Set of spare light bulbs and the warning triangle
  • High visibility jackets for all occupants
  • First aid kit
  • Check insurance policy details are correct
  • Check that your tyres and fluids levels are correct
  • Check the locations of the nearest Volkswagen Retailers in the area/s you'll be visiting
My car has daytime running lights as standard – how can I turn them off?

Daytime Running Lights (DRL) are automatically switched on when your vehicle is on the move. It is not possible to turn them off.

What should I look for when checking my tyres?

Check for the following:

  • The optimal tyre pressure
  • Tyre treads and side walls for damage or foreign bodies such as nails or glass splinters
  • Cupping, one-sided wear, porous side walls, cuts, and punctures

Please contact us here or consult our friendly service advisors at Volkswagen Centre Singapore for more advice.

Safety and Driver Assistance

What is Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC) and how does it work?

In conjunction with the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), and Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), as well as additional sensors, Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC) helps the driver maintain their intended course by generating corrective forces.

What causes an airbag to deploy?

In certain types of vehicle collisions, pressure sensors and crash sensors detect and rapidly trigger the deployment of corresponding front airbags, side airbags, head curtain airbags, or some combination of the above. Airbags inflate very suddenly to help ensure complete inflation before contacting occupants.

Remember that airbags are supplemental restraints only and will not deploy under all crash circumstances. Always use safety belts and seat children only in the rear, using restraint systems appropriate for their size and age.

Will a side or rear impact or rollover cause the airbag to deploy?

Your safety is important to us. Here are some details on how our airbag system works. First of all, the system is designed to only deploy the airbags facing the direction of the collision. The front airbags only deploy in a frontal collision if there is sufficient force and the angle of impact falls within the 60-degree span of the centerline of the vehicle. Side airbags are mounted in the seats and move with the occupants to help optimize protection. A side airbag will deploy in response to a signal from a crash sensor or a pressure sensor. An impact on one side of the vehicle may not deploy the side airbag on the opposite side. Side Curtain Protection® airbags drop down from the roofline above the door frames to help protect front and rear occupants from intrusion, splintering glass, and side window ejection. They also help provide increased protection in some types of rollover accidents or secondary impacts.

Remember that airbags are supplemental restraints only and will not deploy under all crash circumstances. Always use safety belts and seat children only in the rear, using restraint systems appropriate for their size and age.

What does an AFS error message mean?

Allow us to enlighten you. The Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) available in some of our vehicles may trigger an error message to alert the driver about a possible malfunction with the system.

What does brake assist do?

Brake assist is a feature that detects when the accelerator pedal is released quickly and the brakes are depressed suddenly with force-both of which indicate an emergency braking situation. In this situation, the brake system will apply extra braking power.
