I went through and provided direct links to the PDFs in the original post. This should eliminate the confusion with the pic server.

Robert, do you have the 2014 maintenance schedules by any chance? It would also be nice to get ahold of the ones for Audi TDIs if you can pull that off, too.

Unfortunately I do not have access to Audi information.

I will see if they have released the 2014 maintenance schedules yet.

I apologize if these questions sound dumb but can somebody tell me, are these numbers that are in miles and kilometers, in the thousands? Ie 5 in the km row means 5000km?

I have had the car since new, the dealership did ask the work until warranty ran out or the recall stuff. pretty sure timing belt and water pump were done but can remember when. Its a 2004 and I finished paying for it in nov 2010. Can the dealership print of records of ask the work completed with dates?

I have been doing the regular maintenance such as brakes, oil changes, air filter etc but again I have no record of dates etc

What would you all recommend and where to jump in on the schedule? I am at 215,000 km's.

Thank you much in advance for any help y'all

Rockin teh tappytalk deuce!

Are the Canadian guides posted anywhere? I assume I can just convert the miles to km's but if I remember correctly my 2012 TDI is all on even 10,000km's too. More curious to see which way the rounding goes and if the skew gets bigger.

Question Tire Rotation

Hello !
Some of the tire manufacturerers/dealers recommend tire rotations every 5000 miles. (For ex my other Toyota car the dealer recommends tire rotation every 5000 miles). However for the TDI scheduled maintenance comes only once in 10000 miles. Can anyone tell me how the tire rotations are treated ?
thanks !

Welcome,

The answer you seek is in the "2013 Model year Passat TDI" maintenance schedule in the first post of this thread. It might also be in the owner's manual.

Tire rotation is something of a black art, and many opinions and recommendations may be found. We go nowhere near a car dealership for any form of tire service. We have a favorite tire store we have dealt with for a very long time. They have a loyal clientele, because they are conservative in their recommendations. If you don't need tires or shocks, they will tell you they don't think you need them. They recommend rotation every 7,000 miles. This is included free with tires you buy there, along with balancing. Obviously if you buy the tires elsewhere, it's on you. If you go in with a new car (as we did with our Passat when we had 7K), they give you a buy one get one free deal on rotating and balancing the OEM tires.

Hi,
I've bought my 2.5 years old Golf 103TDi wagon 7 months ago. Recently I tried to get a quote for 105,000 km service from a VW dealership, got a quote for around $1600 with timing belt replacement. I mentioned to them that the manual requires this replacement at 120,000km, but they insisted their info tells it has to be done now.
Any idea who I should believe?

I don't see why Australia would have different recommendations.

But I would bring out the owners manual and see what that says.

Then I would ask them for a print out showing the "updated" suggestions.

Don't let them feed you a line about not being able to print it out for you.

If they don't have anything official (from Volkswagen, not the dealership) showing any updates to the suggested intervals, go with what the owners manual says.

for a 2006 TDI the manual recommends changing oil at 5000 miles
in the break in page DBW tells not to do so until 10000 miles
To be honest DBW is a legend but why is this ?
