It is so easy, except for dropping the sump guard to do the filter which is a pain.

Longboard fits in comfortably with passenger seat tilted back. Plenty of room if needed for sleeping, back seats can be folded / removed. 2.0 TDI so plenty of poke. Average 40mpg, towards 50mpg on motorway. Got a 2003 model for just under £3k.
defever wrote:Just been surfing on the web to see if oil change is DIY-able for non-mechanic, common drivers... It's just draining the old oil, swapping the oil filter, and adding a new oil! Good quality 4.5-5.0L full synth oil (£35.00) and a filter (under £10.00) and say, 0.5hr work and done?! That's easily £90.00-100.00 at a garage, no?
I might give it a go myself for the next interim...
And out of curiosity, full servicing is as above with addition of pollen (£10.00), air (£10.00), and fuel (£15.00) filter (which is basically locating the filters and replacing them) and washer liquid... and that costs £160-200 at a garage.
or am I missing something very important??
