VW OIL CHANGE

Volkswagen Oil Change at German Car Depot

Volkswagen models are known for their precision German engineering that delivers exceptional performance. Regular oil changes are the best way to ensure that this engineering delivers the best ride possible for as long as possible. If you’re driving a VW model with a gas engine that was made after 2004, all your oil changes will require synthetic oil. When the time comes for your VW oil change, don’t put it off, head to German Car Depot for an oil and filter service that includes the factory-recommended synthetic oil, a new oil filter, and a full mechanical inspection of your vehicle.

Our technicians will check 27 items including the condition of your timing belt, cooling system, charging system, brakes, all fluids, etc. This inspection helps identify potential problems before they actually become problems.

The oil change interval recommended most often by Volkswagen is every 10,000 miles when your vehicle is driven under ideal conditions. Most experts and enthusiasts agree that changing your oil at no more than 5,000 miles is a much better idea, especially if your engine is turbocharged, has higher mileage, or is a TDI turbo diesel.

Other circumstances where oil should be changed more frequently include:

  • Driving mostly short distances.
  • Operating your vehicle in dusty areas.
  • Driving in predominantly stop-and-go traffic.
  • Operating at high speeds or high-performance driving.
  • Driving in temperatures below freezing for extended periods.
