      Well the car is turning 60,000 miles. I guess the service is finally on me. What does it cost and what should I expect to be done during the service.

      What consumable items need to be replaced. Everything on the car is doing well other then a TPMS issue mentioned in an earlier thread and also some hesitation or missing when accelerating. Not sure what thats about?

      Appreciate any comments anybody has especially Chris on the service.

      The list of items to be inspected, adjusted, and replaced is in your owner's manual. This service includes spark plugs which look very easy to get to on the V8. It's supposed to take 3.6 hrs of labor.

      To minimize cost, you might want to tell them to "do it by the book" so they don't add extra items without telling you.

      Steven,

      I will look in the book. I wonder if my hesitation is the spark plugs misfiring. Actually I didn't know the Phaeton had them. I assumed it was fuel injected. Shows you what I know. .....

      Larry,

      I can't seem to find it right now, but one of us recently posted a thread in The Car Lounge about his 60k service -- I believe it was around $750-800.

      As for the spark plugs, contrary to what you're surrounded by, not everything is "compression ignition". (How I pine for a Phaeton in the NAR which doesn't require spark plugs...)

      The service (and I'm writing extemporé here) consists of: Lube oil & filter change, tire rotation, replace engine air filter, replace pollen filters, replace spark plugs and the u & c litany of checks (which are desirable to have performed at this juncture).

      Yep. I paid $775.
      The labor was about $500.
      The parts were about $250.


      green= $

      yellow = $$

      red = $$$

      Well Chris and Spectral you both were right on target on your estimates. I paid with tax 877.00 That included the entire 60,000 mile service.
      Labor was $434.00
      Parts made up the balance.
      Oil & Filter
      eight spark plugs (gold plated )
      Washer Fluid
      Filter elements
      air filter
      air filter
      Right & Left wiper blades
      Hazmat charge (rip off)

      Loaner car for the day (included but no charge-nice of dealer)
      The one or two minor issues were taken care of by Baron Volkswagen.

      I did also have one item covered by the Real Driver Platium Warranty coverage. I was having TPMS problems and they replaced the 46VWZ Tire Pressure Monitor Module Shows Labor 148.50 and the 3D0-907-273-G Control unit being $711.03. for a total of $859.53 sure glad I purchased that 100,000 mile real driver no-deductable warranty.
      Glad they had the part in stock.

      Overall Baron Volkswagen continues to take very good care of my Phaeton and Mike Russell the service advisor is very customer centric.

      Anyone recentley have their 1st Generation Touareg V6 have a 60k service completed on it? My wife's has 117K and looks like we'll need it done very soon. Older estimates had it at $800.00. Anyone have it completed and at what cost in 2013? Or even 2014? Anything standout that should be completed in junction w/120k service?
