    QUICK QUESTION?

    Hi people, this might have been asked before but I cant find it anywhere so...my car is coming up for 4 years old (jan) and has only done 21k,my question is ref DSG oil change,the service book and the dealer tells me its due a change @ 40k however I do very little milage so that would be about another 3 years time(if i still have it) is there a time scale to change it or will it be ok to leave till 40k? I would rather have it done early to prevent any problems with the box as the car is out of warranty but when asking the dealer they looked at me like I was mad ???

    is the reason you do so little mileage the fact you dont drive it, or the fact you only drive it short distances?

    I live very close to my work and its a commercial dealership-truck drivers are not very carefull when moving about so I walk to work most days-the car goes on runs weekends as I have family up north but its basically just used weekends thats how I do little milage. I do about 4-5k a year maybe 6?

    Well if you do decide to get it done the delaer will most likely charge you the princely sum of 180 for the priviledge. Parts 80 Labour 100.

    I think it depends on how long you plan to keep it as to wether you opt to have it done early. I you are keeping it another couple of years I'd get it done for peace of mind but negotiate a good price by phoning around various dealers asking for an introductory discount - or get a quote from a VW dealership as they will be cheaper and familiar with the box.

    If the car is out of warranty don't waste your time with a dealer - get a specialist to carry out the work for you.

    I'd probably have it done tho.
