Correct ATF for 2016 VW Passat #4780133

After doing a bit of research, here on BITOG and elsewhere, I have not found a definitive answer on which ATF should be used for a (US) 2016 Passat with the 1.8 liter EA888 Gen 3 engine with Aisin 09G automatic transmission (only transmission available on 2016 Passat 1.8t).

From what I have found, I THINK the proper fluid is VW G 055 540 A2. But, I read somewhere that the G 055 540 A2 was used through 2014, and then it was changed to something else for 2015 and later; I'm not convinced that is correct though.

I have also read that the G 055 540 A2 is either same as or very similar to Toyota WS ATF (which is same as Mobil 3324, Idemitsu Type TLS, etc).

Anyway, does anyone here know what VW part number fluid should be used on a (US) 2016 Passat 1.8T and whether or not Toyota WS, Mobil 3324 ATF are the same?

Thanks

The Aisin transmission uses Toyota WS aka 3324. AAP has Castrol ATF on sale right now for $5/qt. Get their Full Synthetic ATF. There is also Maxlife smile

Are we all sure the spec didn't change for 2015 and later?

I have use Mobil 3309 in my daughters 2008 Jetta which I believe has the same transmisssion. Its spec is VW G-055-025-A2, VW TL 52540-A. I changed it 75k miles ago with no ill effects
