I LIVE in Auburn, Washington!
And this is the dealership Me and My Wife bought our 2015 Jetta TDI from.

The other funny-NOT-is when I took it in around 2 mo. ago for the Part 1 of the settlement to get my Computer Flashed.
As we were doing the paperwork before they took it out back, the service lady told me it had been around 5000 miles since my first year maint. (August of 2016) and that I was due for an Oil change.
Uh, no, I'm not due until August. She said VW recommends it,
I said, Uh, NO. The Scheduled Maint in the book says an Oil Change EVERY YEAR OR 10,000 miles.
She said, 'well, it's there, and they buried it, you have to look to find it.
I then said, Well, we paid for an extra 2 years of maintenance so as long as it's covered go ahead and do it.
She said "Well, it's Not. You'll have to pay for it".
At this point I'm ready to explode, I am not embellishing this at all to make it sound more dramatic. What a bunch of Bull F ing Sh*t!
See, you really can't trust anybody anymore. They're all just liers.
So that's my Auburn, Washington Volkswagen dealership story.

Oh, and here's the punchline.......
I actually DID find a 'note' buried in one of the maintenance books, and sure enough it was there...."VW recommends for 'severe' driving (city) an Oil Change every 5000 miles" next to miles was a 'note' number.
Found the note number and it says that recommendation applies to the Jetta 2015 Gasser models, Not the Diesel TDI.

Flat out liers...........

Well, I might have to eat the 'Liars' word, here's an update from this past tuesday:
Started the TDI and got the 'Wrench' symbol and 5000 in the odometer.
So, I figured 'ah, it is telling me to get an oil change'. And then my wife said something that made sense: 'You know when they flashed the computer with the new software, they probably upped the frequency of Oil Changes cause the engines working harder'.
It makes sense.
Although VW should have stated that to me/us. But they didn't.
So my Auburn VW dealer was right, but they presented it to me the wrong way and I took it the wrong way.
So, now it DOES look like they want you to get an Oil change every 5000 instead of once a year/10000 miles.
I still love my 2015 Jetta!!!

Maybe the "fix" has increased the post injection cycle which in turn increases the oil dilution.

They probably just reset the service reminder so they could fleece more money from customers on unnecessary oil changes.

Yes but they hold the cards here. Remember our TDI's used a specific oil. If we decline and something goes south then guess what?
It comes out to be $80 more per year, again, the car is worth it.

Yes, that specific oil is 507, and can be found quite easily. Even shipped to your doorstep. If they have truly changed the interval to 5k miles for warranty purposes, that's one thing. But I'm quite skeptical of that.

This may be a dumb question. In the destructions for a 2015 Passat they want the air and snow filter replaced at 60k.

Where is the snow filter ???

I have to snicker because I do not see winter/snow.

Isn't that just a piece a fabric layered over the air filter? I think it's optional.

Thanks. I'll pull the engine air filter and check it out.
