I know I could search for hrs on the 10mi Oil change (synthetic)...but:
1) What are the small things that will get me from a maint. standpoint.
2) What and when are the big things going to get me (remember....I am trying to get a manual from the dealer...just bought the suv 2 days ago).
3) Oil at 10k with a turbo....do most recommend (normal driving...U.S.)...5 or 7500?
4) Also, does the S model (2011) have the tire sensing air pressure warning?
tks...newbie...I AM A NEWBIE...
Here's a link to VW maintenance. I realize it only goes to 2010, but the 2011 is the same.
I would change the oil at 5,000 mile intervals as turbo cars tend to enjoy consuming oil. I change mine at that interval even though I do not have a turbocharged car but most of my driving is in the city.
I believe the newer Tiguans do not use the TPMS inside the tire but has a system that works in conjunction with the ABS system. I will let someone else confirm that.
