      The correct amount is 4.2 Qts With Filter per the owners manual.

      Maybe if the dealer or quicklube hurrily put the drainplug back.

      With front of Jetta on ramps, I pulled my plug and filter, did other things for 1/2 hr, and it took 4.5 quarts to get to the full level as opposed to the 4.2qt textbook amount.

      Greasymechtech,
      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.

      What i usually do is fill the oil filter with oil to the top then again and let the oil sink in. Then I use whatever is left until there’s just a little less than one quart. Sits right before that wedge on the dipstick where full mark is. I use Mobil 1 0w-40 for the past 70k Miles with a Mobil 1 filter all changed every 5k miles.

      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.

      Thanks for the additional info. It looks like my oil level is fine then.
