What is the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan oil type?
I have a 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan and it is due for an oil change soon. I’m planning to do the oil change to save some money. What oil type do I need?
Answer provided by
The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan oil type is 5W-30 motor oil, but it may differ depending on your specific model. Check your owner’s manual to confirm which oil type your car needs—and don’t be tempted to substitute for a similar oil type as it can cause engine damage and void your manufacturer’s warranty.
Here are some recommendations for the oils you can use:
- Castrol 03084 EDGE 5W-30 Full Synthetic Motor Oil
- Valvoline High Mileage with MaxLife Technology SAE 5W-30 Synthetic Blend Motor Oil
- Pentosin 8042206 Pento High-Performance II 5W-40 Full Synthetic Motor Oil
Before you change the engine oil, familiarize yourself with the process even if you have done oil changes before—including the engine oil capacity. Any mistake can lead to costly repairs! If you aren’t sure, it’s worth visiting a licensed mechanic to get the job done.
