VW Roadside Assistance van

Roadside Assistance from Volkswagen

Over the past two winters, Volkswagen Roadside Assistance has attended 2,500 battery related call-outs and 700 wiper and washer related call-outs, so to make sure your van isn’t a victim of the cold this year, take advantage of the free Winter Check now available from Volkswagen Van Centres and authorised repairers across the UK.

The free, 30-point Winter Check includes essentials such as battery, lights, tyres, wipers and washers, plus screenwash and antifreeze levels.  If the screenwash is low, it will be topped up for free with Volkswagen genuine screenwash, which can cope with temperatures of minus 70°C.  If any items need replacing, a range of Volkswagen approved replacements are available at competitive prices, including winter tyres, which provide extra grip and traction when temperatures fall below seven degrees.

In addition, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has produced a video of top winter driving tips, with help from the Volkswagen Roadside Assistance partner, the RAC.  This can be seen at, or on YouTube at:

‘People don’t realise the importance of basics like good quality screenwash which works at much lower temperatures than cheaper alternatives, or that the correct antifreeze level is essential to reduce the risk and cost of burst pipes or frozen water pumps,’ said Stephen Bateson, Head of Aftersales and Customer Service.

‘This free Winter Check will help van drivers keep their vehicles on the road this winter, and save the cost of unnecessary repairs and lost business if they breakdown,’ he continued.

About VeeDubKate

I am the owner of this blog, I am passionate (some would say obsessed) with classic VWs (Volkswagens). I run the website - a growing resource for VW owners and enthusiasts, from VW hire, to restoration, to events and shows to technical information and a forum to share knowledge and fun. Most weekends throughout show season you are likely to find me at a VW show, or indeed running one. I run Field of Dreams Aircooled VW show at York Racecourse, just minutes from the city centre and I co-organise Dubs int' Dales in the Yorkshire Dales, along with Dubtricks. Classic Volks the brand is growing daily and I am constantly adding to the website, the latest addition being the classified adverts and the shop page where I am now selling Classic Volks branded t-shirts, these are available in a variety of sizes and colours.
