Default Thanks!!

Thanks for posting this Fixmy59bug! Super-helpful.

So - I just picked up my '13 TDI JSW in December, she's got about 6k miles so far (and I'm loving every mile!)

10k seems like a loooong time to go without an oil change by my conventional way of thinking. The local mechanic who works on my other rides drives a TDI and mentioned to me that he'd recommend changing about every 6k miles instead. He mentioned that he'd seen them "sludge up" a bit before 10k miles.

I'm wondering whether VW's long oil change intervals might be influenced a bit by trying to reduce costs for the Carefree maintenance program they offer. Any opinions on this?
