What is the recommended oil type for the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta?

Advancements in vehicle build quality have led to today’s models being lighter yet more powerful than ever. Still, even with all the bells and whistles that make today’s cars amazing, one constant remains – oil. Friction is a chief variable for the drive, and because of this, it’s essential to keep your motor’s components lubricated right so that you can perform the way you should.

If you’re wondering, “What is the recommended oil type for the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta?” Our Boucher VW team has your answer below – check it out to see where you should stand!

2019 Volkswagen Jetta oil viscosity recommendation

The 2019 Jetta is an incredible piece of engineering, and its turbocharged engine is built to succeed in any condition. To keep it performing at its best, we recommend that you use oil with a grade of 5W-30. This viscosity is able to keep your engine running well in most temperatures that Wisconsin can throw at you, keep your motor and parts clean, and even help you get increased fuel economy.

How often should you replace the oil in your Volkswagen Jetta?

The popularity of synthetic oils has rendered the old 3,000-mile rule moot. Of course, it’s not a bad idea to get your oil replaced in quicker intervals than longer ones, but when you’re in a pinch, you can keep your car running anywhere from 5,000-7,000 miles between oil changes. Of course, this varies depending on weather conditions and usage, but unless you overdo it you should be good to go!
