    Oil change for 2012 Jetta 2.5 SE

    I was just wondering if anyone knows the exact weight of oil and type that my new 2012 Jetta 2.5 SE takes??? I see that it suppositely only needs to be changed every 10k miles but is it suggested to do every 5k?? thanks!!

    vw recommends Castol Edge with SPT 5W-40 (full synthetic)

    i use Mobil1 0-40 (european formula) VW 502.00+ spec (full synthetic)

    as long as it is VW 502.00+ spec, it is ok to use. it will clearly be marked on the back of the container.

    edit: easiest way to tell; if it doesn't read Volkswagen or VW502.00, 505.00, ... then don't buy it.

    Here are a few Oil Service Kits that you can order from ecstuning.com: www.ecstuning.com/Volkswagen-Jetta_VI-Sedan-2.5/Maintenance/Engine/Service_Kit/

    What he said. Castrol Edge 5w 40 is what my dealer uses but any 502.00 VW spec full synthetic will work.

    also, don't be surprised about how much it costs (8-10 bucks a quart). sometimes you can find deals at local parts houses, sometimes almost three buck off our bottle.
