Hello everyone!
I have a Tiguan SEL TDi 150 which was delivered back in January, when ordering the Tig I was told service intervals of 20k or 2yrs but this week after 8600mls its saying 1200mls to Oil Service.
Called the local VW Dealer whom quoted £164 inc vat & parts.... have others had an Oil Service warning around 10k ??

PS:
Love the Tiguan!

Thanks for the info, i didnt realise that theres two plans... i do about 20k per year so need to change to the flexible plan asap!. Is changing to variable servicing something the dealer needs to undertake??

Yes, he can do this and could have set it up for you on initial delivery. Maybe worth a chat with them to see if they can change it now, midstream.

Same here. I thought I was on the flexible service plan rather than the fixed version. It had its first oil change service yesterday at the 9000 or so miles and when I queried them they said if you took out a service plan, one of the conditions is that it has to be fixed not flexible! Mine was free as part of an SUV event when I purchased last Oct but I will be there again soon for my 2nd service as I will be driving to Sicily next month, 3000+ miles in just over 2 weeks!
Can't complain with the service though as it's my first VW and didn't realise they provide you with a short video of your vehicle showing the status of the underside of your car, shock absorbers, exhaust, tyre depths etc. Very high tech.

Cheers for all the feedback, spoke to VW who confirmed the service should be set to variable with it being on a PCH contract, they told me to speak with local dealer who then said it does have longlife oil so i need to pop in for a quick computer update to switch the service from fixed to variable.... at no cost!
