    First service - Main dealer or Indie?

    Some advice and thoughts needed please. My T32 LWB Kombi is coming up to one year old. I bought it new from Heritage in Bristol and was massively underwhelmed by the buying experience with them. I have since heard lots of negatives about their aftercare and service. Should I stick with a main...

    How do I access MFD to change service interval in 19 Trendline.

    Guessing it’s me, but I don’t know how to access mfd data. Been sat in the van ten minutes with no luck. I’d like to change the service schedule to Long Life and change the digital speedo from Kph to Mph. I don’t have steering wheel controls. Done a search but can’t find anything helpful. Can...

    Interval Service, and the point is??

    Just back from an 'Interval' service which came up on the dash reminder last week. The VW van centre handily also sent me a video of exactly what they did during the service! The video is about 120 seconds long, to be fair it doesn't include getting it up on the ramp, and then he looks at the...

    What’s included in a VW service?

    Had my first interim service at a main dealer last Friday and all was ok, just wondered what’s included in the service as today my “ad blue” warning has come on to let me know I need to top up. It’s not really an issue as I can do this myself but would of thought a service would have picked this...

    Carista: Service Due Reset - Does It Affect Fixed Vs Flexible?

    Does anyone have any experience of using the Carista feature to reset the 'Service Due' indication? Does it work OK on T6? Does it affect/corrupt the Service Regime (Fixed/Flexible) your van is set to? Can you change the Service Regime using Carista? Thanks! D.

    Servicing Intervals Set Wrong

    My van was sold on the long life service interval and I took out the VW service plan to cover the first two services. It’s a 17 plate van, the fist service was completed last April at 13 months / 14,500 miles. No issue with that, however, the service due warning has just appeared after covering...

    Looking for service information on what gets serviced and when... Have seen the post that explains when you should get it serviced (mine is on the flexible system but will be doing it annually) When I was looking into these vans the internet seemed to think the 4motion haldex should be done at...

    'Inspection Now' message

    Hi my van is almost due the 20000 mile inspection, I rang up local dealer and he said it is a service, I thought it got serviced at 25000 miles? I have a service plan and don’t want them using my plan unless it is a service and not an inspection as I thought. Any help appreciated
