Volkswagen recommends having your 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Tiguan may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Volkswagen if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Tiguan. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Tiguan engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Tiguan’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen Tiguan oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Tiguan spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
