Time for an oil change?
The service interval display in the main display will remind you
Your owner’s manual will inform you when it’s time for an oil change. There are two types of interval when it comes to changing the engine oil:
- Flexible service:
According to the service interval display, but at the latest after two years or 30,000 km
- Fixed service:
Every 10.000 km, but at least once a year.
Important: A high number of short distances and cold starts may reduce the time between the intervals. You can inform yourself on our pages about maintenance and inspection intervals.
Always have 1 l of oil on hand
Perfect for taking on longer journeys: the 1 l container from Volkswagen. Simply stowed away in the luggage compartment. It’s especially important to have 1 l of the right grade in the car when you head off on holiday.
The high-quality additives in the container are your engine’s essential vitamins and minerals. When kept in its original container, the engine oil can be safely stored for at least four years.
