Bought a 2013 Tiguan 2.0D 4Motion with 30000 miles on it last November, it had been a Motability car and I was advised it had had all necessary servicing done. I expected that the MFD display would tell me when work needed doing. Sure enough last week it said Inspection due in 20 days.
I know nothing about servicing.
Looking into it, the service book shows an Inspection was carried out in March 2015 (at 15000 miles). I have a service history printout from a VW dealer that agrees with that but also says in September 2016 it was MOT'd and had the Hydraulic fluid changed (I would guess that was at 28000 miles).
That means the oil hasn't been changed for 2 1/4 years - seems like an excessively long time?
I feel that although the message is that an Inspection is due (AKA minor service?) I would prefer to do a major service (and probably just do this annually from now on - based on 8000 miles annually) - is that sensible?
