2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI: Clean

April 29, 2014

2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG

I popped the hood to check the oil in our 2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI, which is usually a dirty job. Not only was the dipstick clearly visible, and made of plastic so I didn't burn my fingers, but there was barely a speck of dust on the engine cover.

Usually, a film of oil builds up on the metal and plastic and then is covered by grime and dust. But you could have eaten a picnic lunch off the top of this engine. It must be an extremely well-sealed engine compartment.

And, no, the engine didn't need oil.
