Self Study Program 224 – Service Interval Extension Basics for LongLife Service

VAG SSP 224. Since Model Year 2000 Audi and Volkswagen have been fitting most models with service interval extension. Depending on model and engine variants, service intervals of up to 2 years or max. 30,000 km are possible for petrol engines and 50,000 km for certain diesel engines.

This meets customer wishes to reduce the servicing requirements and also improves our competitiveness.

Technical requirements form the advanced developments to engines, the Service Interval Display and new wear-resistant engine oils.

Every service on cars with service interval extension always involves an oil change.

Service interval extension has first been launched in Germany. For all other countries, please refer to the vehicle identification.
