    Oil Change Interval - Changed by Mechanic?

    I know from the maintenance schedule that the oil on my 2010 Jetta needs to be changed every 15,000 kms. Usually if I go to the dealership or my local VW mechanic they always put a sticker on the windshield noting a shorter interval and I just ignore it. This time the counter on my Jetta is...
