Thanks.

That really depends on where you have it done. Some have reported dealers charging up to $1200 - but that is a rip off. Are you planning to use a VW dealer? It will be much cheaper if you find a competent VW mechanic away from the dealer. A friend of mine changed his own oil and filters, got a free tire rotation at PepBoys, and paid a local VW shop about $250 for the DSG service. That's really all that in involved in a 40k service (unless your dealer gives you a "free" car wash).

Therefore I would say that it will cost you somewhere between $400 to about $1200 depending on where you take it. At a dealer, I would expect it to be around $700 to $900. Call dealers and ask, then call trusted mechanics and ask. In almost every state shops must give you an estimate before they begin work and they cannot charge you more than 10% over that estimate without your permission. Do not be afraid to ask how much it will cost before you give them your car keys.

Have Fun!

lol, this reminds me of some dealer silliness with me. I think they must of fat fingered some extra digits for my mileage at the courtesy check after buying the car. A month later I got 20k service reminder, then a month after that the 40k. Each time they would come up I would be like *** and delete the email or throw away the mailer. About a week or 2 after the 40k one, they actually called wanting me to come in for it. I was like uhhh, the car is barely more then 4 months old and it's only got 5k on it...and it STILL took a minute for it to sink in for them by the way they reacted, like it was more likely I really did have 40k in 4 mos on it then 5k. They came back to their senses at least tho. haha.

After my last free service at 30,000 miles, I got a quote from the dealer for approximately $1200 for the 40,000 mile service. Since I live in Orange county CA, I called the guys at Wild Rose Motors and got their estimate for the same service and they quoted $700. Seems like a no brainer especially since Leonard Harviex seems to know as much about these cars as anyone around. So........I'm turning my baby over to Leonard at 40K which should be sometime mid-summer.

My 40k in Scottsdale only cost $287, but I have the manual. My 50k is next week, when I called and made the appt they said they would take care of the 50k service... I'll have to see it to believe it. Though it is only an oil change and rotation.

I had my 40K done last month at the dealership for $653.14 total with tax. $276 of that was for the DSG service. I had a few extra things done (I change my fuel filter every 10K). I also had them change the brake fluid and they did the latest ECU reflash (no charge).

My point is, the $1200 they quoted you seems exorbitant.

Check your owner's manual. I would hope it has a list there. Dealers and a lot of fast lube places like to add on things that are not needed.

The one thing I would add is a transmission fluid drain and replacement. If it has a filter then that should also be replaced. Don't have it "Flushed" That is generally a quick and dirty fluid replacement and benefits only the dealer not you.

LMFAO, where can you get 4 liters of 507 engine oil for $10.50??? and how about the charge of $0.99 to check the power steering fluid.

Looks like Edmunds got the TDI mixed up with a Corolla.

The Edmunds data is worthless.

I did my 40k service though a local TDI guru. Cost me about 150 with labor and parts. Included were: oil change, fuel filter change, air filter.

Well, my invoice is as follows...
-FilterElem...$10.44
-Screw...$3.48
-Eng Oil (G-052-195-1L) 9.38x4=$37.52
-FilterElem...$43.21
-AirFilter...$29.00
-FilterElem-$22.62
-Windowwash...$4.07

That was parts, labor was $109.61.
Then with fees and tax comes out to $296.10...

So I realized they boned me on the screw and window wash, but 4 filters? Oil, Air, and Cabin... What is the 4th filter?...

All in all, not as bad as it could have been. Though the last 2 times they also did not fill my oil to the 4.3L capacity. I called and complained and they sent me a free Liter, so I have a little extra just in case.

The OP was asking about the 40k service on a DSG equipped car. The DSG service adds considerably to the service cost. Just the fluids and filter is about $120 - $150, plus the labor which will probably be at least that much as well. 40k service for a manual transmission car is a lot cheaper because the manual tranny does not require service at 40k.

P.S. 4th filter is the fuel filter. Air filter, Oil filter, fuel filter and cabin air filter are all part of the 40k service. I'm not sure what the "window wash" was all about.

Have Fun!

Don
