VW Jetta gets fluid flushed\changed for trip North

The 2008 VW Jetta we bought in April (about two months ago)
is in the lube shop and this time for new Valvoline 5-30 oil and filter change.
(This is an older picture but this is the place we went back to.)

The transmission fluid was also changed and we flushed and changed the coolant (antifreeze). This was done as general maintaince and for our trip North to the US and back. Note that we had the oil changed sooner then necessary because of the prior work done on sealing the pan gasket...wanted to make sure it had fresh, new oil for the trip.   We also purchased two quarts of oil for spares just in-case we would need them. That is doubtful as the car does not use oil up but just in-case 5-30 is hard to find in the US.
