I have been looking over the warranty and maintenance booklet for my new 2010 JSW and have a few questions. Many owners seem to be encouraging DIY oil changes as opposed to having dealer service during the "Carefree" maintenance period. Has anyone had a warranty claim refused because of a DIY oil change? What were the circumstances? Any stories? How best to prove that a DIY oil change was performed on time and done properly? Save the receipts, bottles, and simply fill out the service record in the booklet? Witnesses required? These booklets were reviewed by lawyers - best to know how to protect my (our) warranty rights in advance.

After having a dealer deny striping the threads of my oil pan on my old car (a Honda) during a regular oil change after they had changed it the last time, I'm leaning toward DIY for the Jetta. Besides, all the stories of wrong oil and overfilling for new Jetta TDIs have me a little freaked out. Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
