Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has announced a revised Service Maintenance Schedule for Volkswagen cars. It offers up to 26% savings for Volkswagen owners (calculated based on five years or 75,000 km), and it is effective from April 1, 2018.

VPCM managing director Florian Steiner said that the move is in line with the company’s continuous efforts to optimise the ownership experience and in giving owners peace-of-mind. “The revised Service Maintenance Schedule, paired with the three years’ free maintenance programme which we introduced on January 1, 2018, makes owning a Volkswagen even more cost-effective,” he added.

The updated Service Maintenance Schedules applies to all current and previous Volkswagen models (click here to find your specific model) sold in Malaysia. However, it’s worth noting that this is only applicable to models sold via authorised distributors, and does not cover grey import models.

According to VPCM, the revision is due to extended replacement intervals of certain components (they now last longer). This translates into better savings for the owner, and Volkswagen will still perform the standard routine checks as part of the standard service process. What do you think of this?
