What is the oil capcity on a 2017 1.4t jetta,
I change my own oil.
Like you, I had also put in 4.5 qts to get to the full mark after letting the oil drain for at least 15-20 minutes. However, after leaving it sit overnight, and randomly checking it again over the next few weeks I found it is now a little overfull. I guess it takes a good while for all the residual oil to drain down into the pan on this engine.. I just left it like it is, but next time, it will be exactly 4.2 qts.

Dipstick is calibrated for a hot engine oil check, typical for someone that exercises the dipstick at the gas station after filling the vehicle up.
With the engine at operating temperature, park the vehicle on a level surface to help prevent an incorrect oil level reading.
Switch off the engine and wait a few minutes for the engine oil to flow back into the oil pan.
