30k Service - $499!!!!


My car is a 2014 GTI (mk6) and I am approaching 30000 miles.

Do I have to perform the service in VW in order for me to keep my warranty?

I have extended the bumper to bumper warranty on my car when I reached 25000 miles. So I am covered for another few years.

The guy in VW told me that the 30k service is $499!!! Crazy!

When I checked the USA Warranty and Maintenance book, it is mainly an oil change only... The price is so high because of the extra checks they perform, which is not necessary, I can as well do this on my own.

Please let me know if any of you had the same dilemma...

Vw is a complete rip off for service. Basic service such as tune ups and such can be done in your drive way for much cheaper. The only thing I use them for is the dsg fluid change.

Is your car a DSG and is that 30k mile service covering the DSG fluid change?

The 40k mile service on my R is due tomorrow and they quoted me 215 dollars...

Something is fishy with that price.

VW dealers charge a lot in general. Im guessing they're probably extra ballsy with your estimated fees because they know you are worried about losing your warranty. I am kinda glad my warranty is up because now I have no qualms about using other mechanics.
