This is Lin from Surrey BC, new to this forum, glad to be here!
I bought a CPO 2015 Jetta from for my wife last year, 32000km& just serviced at the time. The car is about 44500km at this moment, thinking it's a good time to do the oil change at 45000 mark, got a few question~.
1. Okay, the first question is the price. This is our first VW, so how much is the Oil change at the dealer? there might be slightly different prices between dealers, just trying to get a general idea, I'm seeing some dealers from Toronto advertising $79.99 - $99.99.
2. For OCI, I'm planing on 15000km interval between the oil changes, like suggested on the manual. I've been reading about 20 posts regarding VW OCI over forums, I'm hearing a lot of 8000kms, some 12000kms, not so many 15000kms. I'm somewhat comfortable with the 15000km interval, since the typical daily usage is 40km-one way/80km-roundtrip and 95%Hwy with no traffic, cruise controlled at 98-100km/h and never over, the summer is about 15-25 Celsius and winter -5 celsius. I'll share some more info with you guy at the bottom. There are folks that says 15000km is a Europe thing, b/c they tax the **** out of waste and disposal on used motor oil. what intervals are you guys on?
3. I'd consider the car fairly new, nothing much needs to be replaced or flushed. The Cabin air filter is like the easiest DIY job, I use the new Bosch Hepa Filter, $23CAD From Amazon compare to get it changed at the Dealer for $58CAD+Tax. Same with the windshield wiper. remind me if i missed anything.
Fuel Economy: The car has been quite smooth over the 6 months, started with a 9.0L/100km, and now comes steady between 7.2-7.6L/100km. We use Fuelly App to track.
Performance: Holy cow, we finally understand why they call this a 2. SLOW. it's SLOW~. it's a great commuter car, but it's nothing like the 2011 BMW 328 Xdrive we used to have(we missed that car so much), or the 2014 F150 5.0L Supercrew I'm driving (this is our road trip truck, just tons of power， towing a 6000lbs boat like nothing)
This is about it, I'll add more to it when it comes up.
