Default VW Website wrong on Jetta 2011 oil capacity?

Doesn't the Jetta 2011 TDI have the exact same engine as the 2009-10?

For some reason, they are posting oil capacity at 5.8 qt when you look at the tech specs. I hope that doesn't stir up more confusion at dealerships.

I saw a new one on the drive in this morning, didn't know they had arrived.

It's wrong, the 2.0 CR would choke on that much oil.

CBEA (09) takes 4L. CJAA (10) takes 4.3L. We have just started doing PDI's on the 11's and as far as I am aware they are also CJAA engines so they should also be 4.3L. Its not that hard to change capacity, VW has a buttload of different oil pans that they use to change engine capacity. It would be a pretty big pan though to get another 1.5L into that engine. The 2.5 takes 6.3 qts, but that puts it a bit low on the crosshatch so I usually do 6.5 to get it more centered.
