You can use any permanent antifreeze( prestone, peak, store brands) mixed at 50/50 with water. 15 years ago it was a concern because not all antifreeze formulations were compatible with aluminum engine parts but now all are. Antifreeze companies would like you to change your antifreeze every 2 years but changing it at the 100,000 mile intervals should be fine.I hope this helps you. Mark the newer vw's run with a special coolant available from the dealer that is pink the part number is g 012 a8fa4. do not run anything else in your motor.

Standard antifreeze should be changed every two years. Long life antifreeze needs changing every five years.

The color of the antifreeze does not matter, as long as its the same type used to fill it the last time you changed it. I would suggest using the "long life or extended life antifreeze. this is good for around 2-3 years. You can buy the cheaper stuff, but it must be changed more often. But again, the color does not matter.

If it is clean and offers proper protection both against freezing (-20) and against "boil over" you can get 100,000 miles or 5 years

Antifreeze could be running out often due to a leak. It is important to inspect the radiator for small cracks or smoke.

Find another shop. Most manual transmissions oil need to be changed only after 50,000 to 100,000 miles. If you have no shifting problems leave it alone.

Ethylene glycol is actual 'antifreeze' but it often times called glycol which is improper as there are many otehr chemicals made up of 'glycol'

If you do not drive it often, I would recommend getting it changed every 3 months. That is what many mechanics tell you to do.

60% water and 40% anti-freeze works better than, 50/50, unless it freezes often where you live.

That you change the belts when there is visible signs of wear. Look at the belt for cracks. Dryness and cracks are signs that the belt should be changed.

Look for a valve at the inside bottom of the radiator, often on the left side.
