I have a 2004 Jetta TDI wagon and except for regular servicing at 5000 mile intervals (oil and filter) this VW has not cost one cent in the 1 1/2 years and 15500 miles I've had it and consistanly gives me 40-42 mpg in local driving.
I've had a VW TDI Beetle before this and only had to replace tires in the 60000 miles I had that. Traded it because I needed more room.

What is your reason for changing oil at 5,000 miles in the TDI when VW recommends changing it at 10,000 mile intervals after the first oil change?
#1837 of 2551 First unscheduled maintainance, TDI Jetta
Sep 25, 2005 (4:38 pm)
At app 67,000 miles at the 28th month mark, the first unscheduled maintainance. hit. Due to DRL lamps which run pretty much 24/7 during engine operation, the left front headlamp burnt out. R/R the 6 dollar headlamp.
It is hard to compare to many other cars not equipped with 24/7 DRL's. The other DRL equipped vehicle went out app the same number of miles but at the 5 year or 60 mo mark.

I noticed the same thing on my 2005 Passat TDI Sedan...I really didn't think much of time...I'll check with my dealer about getting the strips replaced or finding a way to remove the discolorization.
#1842 of 2551 Import Passat TDI from Europe
Oct 01, 2005 (11:14 pm)
I would like to ask someone, if you have any information about importing Passat TDI from Europe to California. I checked here at DMV and they act like if they register anything, but VW dealership told me that the emissions from Europe must match the requirements here in Cali. Any suggestions, experience?

I am looking for some advise in what obstacles I will be facing importing VW Passat TDI from Europe to California. I was told that it is only an emission problem, but I wondered if somebody has a live experience. Thanks
