What type of oil is best for oil changes for my 2010 Volkswagen Beetle?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Diana, VW oil recommendations, specifications, quality standards, and oil viscosity weight are specified in your owner's manual. It's important to use the correct oil.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube That information can be found in your owners manual.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive It should take 5-40. The oil needs to meet VW 502 00 specifications. This will be listed on the back of the bottle of oil. It should be listed as manufacturer approved either through Castrol syntec (black bottle) or Mobil 1.
