Best Oil For Your Volkswagen

When it comes to fluids, you want to use the ones that will work best in your vehicle. To find out which type of oil to use, Volkswagen tells us to check the owner’s manual. Well, we did so, and compiled the following table of recommended oil types for your convenience. Read on to find out which oil should be used in your 2019 Volkswagen vehicle for optimal health and performance.

Volkswagen recommends drivers to use approved oil that expressly complies with the VW oil quality standard for their vehicle’s engine. Synthetic oils fulfill this requirement, but not all synthetic oils. Be sure that the one you’re using expressly complies with the particular standards listed for your vehicle’s engine. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact us at Hall Volkswagen.
