To be honest DBW is a legend but why is this ?
The schedule notes at the bottom that it was revised in 2010, 4 years after the 2006 cars were sold.

I owned 2 2006 Jetta TDIs and IIRC they called for a first oil change at 10,000 miles, not 5,000. The 1.8 Turbo GAS engine was 5,000 IIRC.
You asked this question in 2014.... so the question is decidedly MOOT.

Unfortunately I no longer work for Vw.

So I do not have access to any further maintenance schedules.

That may change in the future. I have not yet decided if I want to apply at another dealership or if my experiences at Riverside soured me on the whole thing.

Only time will tell.

Fixmy59bug: Thank you for posting these. I recently purchased a user's manual for the 2010 Jetta TDI I purchased used but the information in it wasn't listed in this format, which made it harder to picture what the maintenance schedule should look like past 120K miles. Mine is now at 149K so I can't just look in the book like you can for the earlier mile markers.

I took the data from the PDF and entered it into an Excel spreadsheet, then extrapolated it out all the way to 500K miles. (I don't know how long I'll have her but this way I'll never have to do this again.) I also split out the data into a few other tabs and deleted blank fields so I can look at only what maintenance need to be done at my current mileage without having to sift through all the other stuff.

I wanted to upload it here for others to use but I guess I don't have the ability to attach to forum posts. For now you can get it here. Cheers.

Default Dirty oil at 3000 mi, mpg decreasing by 5 mpg

I have a 2014 Passat TDI nav, DRG, and I've noticed my mpg has decreased by about 5 mpg in the last 1000 miles. The oil is black at 3000 miles. First scheduled oil change is 10,000 mi. Can I expect better mpg if I changed oil at 5,000 mi ? Driving conditions have not changed.

Changing oil twice as often as the official schedule requires will have no effect on fuel mileage.

I strongly suggest that you have a UOA (used oil analysis) done soon to put your mind at ease.

Black is the normal color for oil in a diesel engine. Diesel oils are designed to hold soot in suspension rather than let it turn to sludge in the bottom of the engine. It is doing its job perfectly. I would start to worry if my oil was not black. Changing motor oil will not significantly change your mileage. Temperature, time of year, mood, and traffic lights all have a far greater effect on mileage than oil changes ever will.

Changing your oil more often that recommended is (at best) a waste of money and it might even do more harm than good. Here is some interesting reading for you: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showpost.p...4&postcount=27

Have Fun!
