Service Schedule for MK7 GTI (2015, 2016)

January 11, 2016
|

Looking for the service manual requirements for your VW MK7 GTI?  We put together a quick and easy list of what is required at each service interval.  The list shown below is 100% as per Volkswagen’s recommended interval.  Most MK7 owners who are meticulous about maintaining their vehicle will change their oil every 5k miles instead of 10k.  Doing this is a matter of preference and you should consider doing what you believe to be the best choice for you.

 

What should I make sure I do if I am doing my own MK7 GTI maintenance?

If you have decided to maintain your own vehicle you should be sure to do a few things.

  1. Keep meticulous service records including mileage, date and proof of purchase of the parts.  This is important because if you ever run into a warranty issue they may ask you for service records.  Failing to produce these could result in a denial of a warranty claim.
  2. Make sure you are using oil that meets the required spec.  As per the owners manual you can use 5w-30 or 5w-40 but the oil must meet the required Volkswagen Spec of “VW 502 00”.  All of our MK7 GTI maintenance kits include oil that meets or exceeds this spec.

    Hello! I’m a new 2016 MK7 GTI, DSG owner. I would like to know if always turning on ‘Sport’ mode is ok with the car? Other than a less gas mileage, what else is the down side of having the car in sport mode?

    Thank you so much.

      It shouldn’t be an issue. How you drive has more effect than the mode you drive in

    I have a 2015 GTI Autobahn DSG and have noticed from day one that there is a pinging much like a BB bouncing in a glass jar from around 1500 rpm to 2200 rpm and only while the transmission is engaged(not in park or neutral) . I brought it to the dealer and asked them about it and they said it’s just DSG noise. I have checked some forums and they say wastegate rattle… Anything to worry about?

      No way for us to know. You should get a second opinion if you are concerned.

    I am a new owner of 2016 GTI and I am getting close to the first service being due. I am a mechanic and wonder if 10,000 miles is too long to go in between oil changes. Seams like a long time to go considering its turbo charged and I don’t baby it. Also what steps do you suggest on preventing carbon build up on the valves? I haven’t seen this issue myself just been told it can be a issue. I would rather do a little extra maintenance the deal with missfire problems down the road.

      We generally would do every 5k if youre planning on keeping the car long term

    Do you have a similar maintenance schedule for an Audi Q3?

      I think you are looking at the TDI models.
