Being such a popular car most reputable service centres will be able to service your car to VW specifications as well as easily source the parts needed for regular maintenance and repairs.

Most reputable service centres may also offer free safety checks for components such as brakes, tyres and fluids which will help identify parts that might be wearing out before they become a problem and create a large repair bill. Another check to consider on older models is the Air Con efficiency as the AC system may need recharging to bring it back up to full capability.
