    Hi there,
    My high line auto was new in January '16.Its covered 15500 miles and the service indicator says it has 9500 miles to go until it's 1st service.
    25k miles seems very high for a 1st service.My local VW van centre says it does not need serviced until the indicator says so!
    Any advice would be appreciated.Cheers

    Had mine done at 24K miles/ 2 years old - and even then it was only a £130 oil/filter change! Next one was done at 35K/4 years old - that was a killer as the cambelt is due at 4 years :(

    The UK service intervals are huge compared to the ones in Australia. Mine has service intervals of 15k km (9.4k miles?) or 12 months.

    Yes big service intervals . Just had a big 70.000 mile service with cam belt as my amarok is 4 years old stinger ,but needs to be done . The mechanic at volkswagen said to me that he would recommend to have a oil change at every 10/15.000 miles . To help the engines as vw engines are bloody expensive. If they go wrong .

    I was told the same by the dealer. Wait until it asks for a service, I like to change oil regularly so might get an oil change at a year.

    That said it's done 6k miles and the oil is right on the bottom of the dipstick so maybe it's doing it's own oil change.. .
