  4. synthetic oil change interval, how many miles between oil changes?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    What many miles do you recommend between oil changes with full synthetic oil, with a V6, 150,000 miles, driving 80% city streets, 20% highway. Also, does the weather affect things, like a cold winter in Minnesota? I always change the filter when I change the oil.

    Hi everyone, I'm posting this thread as I'm hoping it may help others. When I initially bought my VW MFD-D Sat Nav and retrofitted it into my Passat B5, I was sad to see that it gave the error "unable to read disc". So I tried many things, firstly I bought a genuine disc secondhand off of...

    Recently my 2010 CC wouldn't start. When my mechanic looked at it with his friend-who is a VW mechanic- he said he thought it was the exhaust valve.
