In the UK, if you’re on VW’s time and distance service regime, the recommended service intervals during the first three years are 12 months or 9,300 miles, whichever occurs first.I just go with whatever the manufacturers/dealer recommend. I find a car expensive enough without extras.
I've just clocked 8,079 since new - 10,700 should see me through the first 12 months.
Been driving without, oil related, issues since 1979 - about a million miles overall.
There’s no benefit to more frequent changes if you’re not tracking frequently. Blackstone analysis in countless cars shows the 10k mile interval is just fine.I did my first oil change at <1K miles. I did it myself and very easy also oil filter and checked for metal flakes.
IMHO I'd NEVER go 10K miles on an oil change.
My car’s on VW’s annual time and distance servicing regime and my annual mileage these days is around 4,500 miles. Annual time and distance services alternate between a minor (oil and filter change) service and a major (oil and filter change and inspection) service. So yes, your oil should be changed.I,m having my first service in April 2023 car currently on 5100 miles and nearly a year old so I assume they will change the oil.
On a slightly different angle I had a BMW 330i which needed topping up with oil every 1000-1500 miles which was normal for the model.
Take a look at the link in the post above.I have a service plan , the service on the dash info says in 18500 miles service due ...mm.
Reading your earlier posts: if you are in a flexible service regime with your dashboard saying service in 18,500 miles then you may have been missold a fixed 12 month service plan. You've bought an every 12 month plan but they've set your car up to report a flexible plan.I have a service plan , the service on the dash info says in 18500 miles service due ...mm.
As I mentioned my current car is on a flexible service plan, and it is on a PCP - my first.
Previous VW Mk6, as mentioned, is still going strong at 12 years old, and has always been serviced in accordance with VW flexible regime - about every 18,000.
I always keep cars for about 8 - 9 years. It's only with VWs I used flexible servicing, others have been 12 month intervals.
