Have 2007 with 44k. My new mechanic saying I only have to change oil every ten thousand miles. Does that sound ok/correct? THX!!
Yes 10,000 miles is the VW recommended oil change interval. I do a lot of city driving so I choose to change every 5,000 which for me ends up being once every 8-9 months. Make sure they only use 502.00 spec full synthetic oil.Have 2007 with 44k. My new mechanic saying I only have to change oil every ten thousand miles. Does that sound ok/correct? THX!!
Recommended oil change intervals from VW are 10,000 miles. I personally change the oil every 5,000 miles since most of my driving is stop-and-go city driving. The 3 month/3,000 oil change is no longer the standard that was set by places liked Jiffy Lube. Today's synthetic oils allow for a much greater interval.Sorry to dig up an old thread, but just thought I'd ask a question regarding synthetic and the typical 3 month change interval.
When using synthetic, do I still have to follow that 3 month interval or I can just follow in miles? I've been riding my bike ever since it got nice up here in Indiana and my car has been stationary for most of the time. Last oil change was back in March and I've only put about 1,500 miles on it so far . So should I follow that 3 month interval or should I just wait till those miles rack up?
