FitzShivering: All bets are off if you go to a dealer, though -- at least in this area.
Mr. Eugenides: Eight years ago I paid $250 for a lifetime oil change for my new car. Every 3000 miles as long as I own the car.120,000 miles later I'm still happy to bring it in and get the oil changed every few months.
limeyfellow: You don't change your own oil? I didn't think such people existed.
mr_a: To be honest, I always though the purpose of changing oil was more to remove contaminants and metal shavings than because the oil lost lubricating ability.
poorjon: I've got a Passat with the 1.8T. If you've got a VW turbo and don't make oil changes a religion, the engine will leap out of the hood and try to devour you./Maybe not getting a VW next time.
