Hey all, Just picked up a 2017 Golf Sportwagen with the 1.8 TSI motor. So far its been a pretty great ride. For the VW folks, what is the oil everyone is going with in these (or the 2.0)? I think the factory fill is Castrol 5w40. From the looks of things Mobil 1 0w40 may be a good choice, but honestly I want this thing to last 10 years if possible, so if UOAs or anything point to one oil being the "best" for the TSI motors, I'm in. Also, how is everyone changing the oil on these? I've heard the extraction method is done by some dealers. I was thinking of the first change using the tradition drain method, then doing top-side extraction for changes after. With the filter on top, seems like it could be a simple solution. There are a couple things I don't "like" about the car. First being the plastic oil pan/drain plug. It wasn't a deal breaker at all for me, considering a couple manufacturers are going this route (I think the ford 2.7T has this). VW trusts it enough for the 1.8, the 2.0, and the 2.0 in the Golf R. The housing for the oil filter is also plastic, but there are aftermarket Billet replacement options. My other slight issue is the Direct Injection. The only issue with it is fear of carbon buildup, but I suppose I'll cross that bridge when I get to it, maybe around 50-60k miles. Other than that, its a pretty well put together machine for the money. So far I like the DSG transmission, even though I haven't had too much fun with it while trying to break it in. The 4motion AWD sounds like a good system, but haven't had the weather to try it out (yet).
