Well, I am a new Passat owner and decided it would probably be wise to get my oil changed. Took it to the local VW dealership and had the full synthetic oil change done for 69.99. Is this necessary and is this how much it usually costs? The guy there told me that since it is a turbo engine it requires the synthetic oil. I am no genius when it comes to cars but 69.99 seems pretty damn pricey for an oil change. I was also curious if I need to have anything done @ the 100,000 mile point. My Passat is a few thousand miles shy of that. Wondering if anything needs to be done @ that point. Thanks guys!
