15k km or 1 year between oil changes. I'm still wrapping my head around that as every other car I've had was 5-6k km between oil changes or 6 months. What other intervals are you looking for?

This has been a thing for a long time with Vw. My 08 Gti service intervals were 16k km. Once the car got to 100k I did it every 10k since it had stage 2 tunning. Never had an issue.

2018 Alltrack is also the same I believe. 15-16k km or every 12 months. So far 12 months has always come first since it does about 10k a year.

Were you using conventional or synthetic oil in the cars you were changing out oil every 5-6k km?
Always synthetic. A bit of a thing for me since living in SK and AB where cold start and thick oil is really bad for your engine. Now that I'm somewhere warmer, I still stick to synthetic for maximum longevity of the engine.

Ok, got out the service manual and here's the recommendations.

  • oil change every 15,000 km or every year, which ever comes first.
  • brake fluid every 2 years regardless of mileage
  • AWD clutch fluid change every 3 years (if equipped)
  • front axle diff lock fluid change every 3 years (if equipped)
  • torque splitter (if equipped) should be checked for oil deterioration every 30,000 km
  • check and lubricate sunroof at 60,000km or one year after last service, which ever comes first (if equipped)
  • every 30,000 km or 2 years, check sunroof drains (if equipped) - I do this about once a month during rainy season
  • every 60,000 km or 2 years, replace dust and pollen filter
  • every 60,000 km or 4 years, which ever comes first, replace spark plugs (Arteon, Passat and Golf R only)
  • every 90,000 km or 6 years, which ever comes first, replace air filter element, clean screen and housing
  • every 120,000 km transmission, 7sp DSG change fluid (Jetta GLI, GTI, R)
  • every 120,000 km or 6 years, which ever comes first, replace spark plugs (atlas, atlas cross sport, golf, GTI, Jetta, Jetta GLI, Taos, Tiguan)

As stated earlier, I went through the manual and couldn't find anything specifying what type of oil to use. The sticker in my engine bay states 0w30 or vw 504 00.
