Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

While it's easy to say this is a "Koons" problem, it's pretty much "normal" across many dealer service departments to include additional service items that may not be part of the manufacturer's maintenance schedule. Many will recommend oil changes far sooner than actually required and these other fluid changes are also examples. Why do they do this? Because they make big bucks from it. It's best for all of us to familiarize ourselves with the manufacturer's recommended service intervals in the manual so that we know what's "required" and when which then can be combined with our own personal preferences for doing service. Some folks do like to change their oil more frequently and that's OK. But it should be the vehicle owner's choice based on their own needs and preferences.

The reason they had no record of it ever being done is because it was unlikely that it ever was done...it's not a normal maintenance item. That said, your mileage may put you borderline on something like this unless it's pure highway miles. If it's a lot of local driving for that 20K miles in such a short period of time, by all means, the fluid change may be justified based on the manufacturer's recommendations.

I'll have to look at her invoice and paperwork. Not sure I saw anything about it but they could have done it.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Finally got a winch organised. I decided on a tow bar mount as I have a bar on the front to allow me to push our caravan around in tight spots.
I added 350 Amp Anderson Plugs to the front and rear and also on the winch cables so I can use it front or rear. Works well and can be left at home when not going off road.

Got it through one of our suppliers, Bright Light LED in Melbourne. Wasn't expensive but works for me. Don't do a lot of night driving. Think it was about $120.
