Regular VW car servicing is an essential part of Volkswagen vehicle ownership. It ensures your car runs smoothly and helps identify potential issues before they turn into costly repairs. But how much does it cost to service a VW car in the UK in 2024?


The cost of a VW car service in the UK during 2024 varies depending on several factors, including the model of the car, the type of service, and the garage you choose. On average, the cost for a basic car service in the UK is around £125 (according to the AA). However, the price per hour charged by VW mechanics in the UK can range from £36 to £230 per hour, with dealerships charging an average of £99 per hour and independent garages charging an average of £56 (prices according to Carplus).

A full service, recommended every 12 months or 12,000 miles, averages at £155. A major service, recommended every 24 months or 24,000 miles, has an average cost of £210.

The size and age of your car can also affect the servicing cost. For a small car, a full service costs around £170. For a medium car, the price is about £210, and for a large car, the cost is in the region of £395.

Remember, these are average costs and actual prices may vary. It’s always a good idea to get a quote from your local garage before booking a service. Regular servicing not only keeps your car in top condition but also helps maintain its resale value.
