    2017 Caddy 1.4 Petrol DSG service queries

    Hi all,

    Have just purchased the above unit and wondered if it has a cam belt or timing chain and at what point either need servicing?

    Also have been told it has a 7 speed DSG which unlike the 6 speed doesn’t require service at 60000km and looking to confirm.

    Thanks in advance! Cheers

    I believe the current 1.4T engine uses a timing belt, but your owners manual should confirm this. Most of the time, VW recommend timing belts be changed at 6yrs or 105,000km.

    As for the gearbox, I believe the Caddy uses the 7 speed DSG (DQ200) but you should be able to confirm this quite quickly when driving the car or checking your owners manual. I dont believe VW have an official service schedule for the 7 speed DSG but given the somewhat fragile nature of this gearbox, I would be getting the oil changed at 4yrs or 60,000km like the other DSG gearboxes.

    Thanks Lucas, appreciate your comments. I don’t collect the car until next week and will be sure to read the manual! Cheers
