Just picked up a 2012 VW Jetta s 2.0 4 cyl, non turbo ,it's the base model, so I wanted to immediately change the oil, because the used car place I got it from, had a carquest red filter and unknown oil. So went to Advance Auto I got Liqui Moly 5w-40 (link below) and a Mann w719/30 filter.Advance Auto 5W-40
This oil says it meets the VW 502.00 spec,and the filter says made in Germany. My friend at work told me to get this stuff. He has real nice r32 vr6.
But is this Liqui Moly the best oil for this car,and how are mann filters? I am a newbie with VW engines.
I drive around 155 miles a day,5 days a week,the weekends it sits. All highway and some very easy city side roads,very little traffic or lights.I got this small 2.0 engine for simplicity and ease of maintenance.Also gets a nice 36 mpg hwy without even trying.
Any input on the best oil and filter for the Jetta would be appreciated,want to get this car to 250,000(has 68k)
