Volkswagen recommends having your 2015 Volkswagen Golf R’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your Golf R may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volkswagen Golf R. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2015 Volkswagen Golf R Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Golf R motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Volkswagen Golf R engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen Golf R oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Golf R spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
