Dear Mr. Brady,

I tried giving you a call and I’m sorry we were unable to get in contact.

After speaking with our specialist team, I have more information regarding your CC’s oil capacity. The oil capacity is 4.2 quarts and it should not exceed 4.5 quarts. Additionally, it’s recommended to use the markings on the oil dipstick to prevent any chances of overfilling your VW with oil.

We hope you have many fun miles behind the wheel of your VW! Should you have any other questions or concerns in the future, please feel welcome to email me back or give us a call at 800-822-8987.

Best,



Eric W.
Customer CARE Advocate
Why are they talking about the oil capacity of a CC???
Edit: second post clears things up!

This is completely ridiculous.
I'll phone the dealership that gave me the info from the Nov. 11, 2014 VWoA document. He offered to email it to me, but I refused.
This is completely ridiculous.

I did e-mail him a copy of your post about the error. I also e-mailed him that if it is true they need to recall the dipstick as it is to short.

Exactly. All the warnings about over filling the oil and damage to the cat Makes me nervous about topping it off

Interesting Thread. I just took delivery of my 2015 on Saturday (4/4/15). My oil level is around 3/4 of the hashed area on the dip stick.

My owner's manual states that the oil capacity of the 2.0L diesel engine is 5.8 qts (5.5L).

2015 NMS PASSAT TDI owners need to SCREAM at their dealers about this. It's becoming clear that there are owner's manuals (early) that are incorrect. (The misinformation is probably exacerbated by people reading the GAS oil capacity and not the TDI oil capacity.)

Whether or not this is a dipstick length problem still needs to be determined.

My 2015 Passat TDI SEL Premium, with DPF, purchased in January 2015, shows 4.5 quarts as the oil capacity in the owner's manual.

Just spoke with SA friend at StohlmanVW, Vienna, VA.

He spent several minutes going over various documents re: oil capacity on 2015 TDIs. His conclusion: THE 2015 NMS PASSAT TDI oil capacity is 4.5qts.

The ONLY engine he saw listed as 5.8 qts is the TSI engine, NOT the TDI engine.

The dipstick issue referenced elsewhere isn't related to the Passat, it was a Jetta/Golf issue.

He's convinced the info I received from the shop foreman was incorrect, as he must have read the TSI capacity.

EACH OF YOU MUST VERIFY ALL OF THIS FOR YOURSELF.

How do we explain this?

Yes, on page 303 of the Owner's Manual published 11/2014 (vehicle build date 1/2015) clearly states in the Engine Oil Capacities (with filter) as ~5.8 quarts (5.5 liters).

Very odd that we are seeing different info for the same model year vehicle. I thought the 5.8qts was a little high based on the 2003 1,9TDI's I have owned.

I'll have to do a screen shot later, but yes.

Actually (and strangely), it states the same quantity for all three of their engines (the 1.8, 3.6, and 2.0 Diesel).

Something doesn't seem right with my manual. I can't believe all three engines would have the same capacities. Plus, their sales website refers to the capacity as 4.2Qts.

mo_jt: Better yet, when time permits, take it to your dealer and show it to them. Ask THEM the question!
This just shouldn't be happening...
