Well today was suppose to be wash n wax day, but yet another rainy and muggy day. **sigh** I took this as an opportunity to make my "Bug Binder" ( I'm a filing junkie)
Getting all my paperwork , organized, and prioritizing the regular maintenance and the MUST do!
Little bit about my Sweet Caroline 2003 CC GLS 1.8T ( what i have now come to know from this site as a Blue Lagoon Color Concept)
Adopted her on 4/6/2013 ( what a bday present she was !!! )
She just hit 105,000 on my back from Fenway yesterday
She went in for service at local VW dealership:
5/6/13 for driver side headlight casing loose and headlight not working -FIXED
Scheduled Timing Belt replacement ( unsure of her prior and repair and maintenance)
6/21/13 had - "Repair kit, water pump, thermostat, washer and doublebelt" done Assuming that is all mechanic talk for "yes we changed the timing belt"
I know this has been a long winded post, but rest assure... finally getting to my questions.
Not knowing her maintenance and repair history, what would you all recommend as next should do, or MUST do for her with all your knowledge on Vdubs?
When she went for timing belt, I explained to dealership to look her over good as I was planning on a LONG drive with her soon, and give me recommendations on what should be done before I set off, the dealership recommended oil change and new front tires and alignment.
Do dealerships have info based on VIN as to what has been done to vehicle?
If you read this far... thank you
EDIT: I did the "cardboard test for the first month "
