    I would use API-CD specification oil, 4.7 quarts with an oil filter change. Use a VW oil filter for added protection. Manual transmission calls for 2 quarts of synthetic G50 75w90 gear oil. For automatic transmissions I only have the VW part numbers. Owners handbook should have more information.
