2010 Volkswagen GTI Long-Term Road Test

2010 VW GTI: 10K Mile Service was Good

July 28, 2010


Our long-term 2010 VW GTI started reminding us from a few days ago to perform the 10K service, so we took it to Santa Monica VW yesterday.

Our advisor JD was courteous and the service included Syntec oil and filter, tire rotation, and belts check. There was also a TSB for a driver footwell vent cover, which the dealer secured per VW instructions with a ziptie(?).

The service also included a wash, but curiously the vehicle was dirtier when I picked it up then when I had brought it in (had it at the carwash the day before). But everything else was fine and it was done in a few hours.

And the best part was that it was free, as 2010 VWs include 3 yr/36,000 mile maintenance.

See you again at 20K VW of Santa Monica.

Albert Austria, Senior Engineer @ 10,150 miles
