Ben, I have a '95 Jetta.  Not sure what the maintenance schedule was
for the '94 but if it's anything like the '95, the maintenance mileage
markers were set every 7500 miles (I have no idea why they picked such
an odd number).

7500 mi. maintenance is really just an oil and filter change.

15000 mi. maintenance was the 7500 maint. + tire rotation, check of
the AT shift lock and brakes.

30k mi. was the 15k + battery check, pollen filter replacement,
coolant check, tranny fluid check, spare tire check, on-board diag.
review, plus a couple others.

60k is the next big one.  at that maintenance they check over the
entire vehicle (usually a road test) plus replace belts.

Depending on dealer, they may or may not do all of the listed service
at those markers.  Sometimes, I have to explicitly make sure they're
going to do ALL of the stuff.  Sometimes, they dealer considers those
things aside from oil/filter change and tire rotation to be "recommended".

YMMV.
