  1. Golf SportWagen VII
    My car, purchased in 2016, has just exited warranty, so I guess it makes sense that this would happen now? Hoping maybe someone has some insight as I am going to be taking it to a local shop but the soonest they can get me in is 3 days from now: A handful of times in the last year my Sportwagen...
  2. The Beetle
    Good afternoon fellow VW owners. My wife's Beetle Turbo (2013.5 2.0 TSI Turbo) recently threw up a CEL. It had done this a few times but went away pretty quickly on its own, before I could even run the codes on it. Here last week it did it again, but this time stayed on. I ran the code on it...
  3. Golf V R32
    I’ve read in a few places that if you delete your SAI and want to get rid of the CEL that a UM tune would remove it. I already have a UM tune and was wondering if I now delete the SAI if i’ll get a CEL or not. I messaged United Motorsports directly and they told me they can’t help with emmisions...
  4. Jetta/GLI VI
    Hi friends, I've also posted this in a Jetta Hybrid owners thread, but thought I could get more traffic this way. I just purchased a 2016 Jetta Hybrid SEL with 75,000 miles after doing what I felt was extensive research on the car. I felt reassured that there were not open recalls on the DSG...

  6. Golf V & Jetta V
    Hello everyone, So I have noticed something strange about my GTI over the past 2 years of ownership. no matter what condition the motor is in, the check engine light just doesn't light up. I remember when I first bought the car, I had to do the rear main seal, and even with the car misfiring...

    Please forgive the long post, but want to include all relavent info. And I am a woman and do not know everything there is to know about engines, so please excuse how I may describe things. I have a 1999 VW Cabrio with 110,000 miles on it. Three weeks ago, my dad (who has worked on VWs since...

  9. Jetta VII
    So tonight it happened for the third time I went to fill up my Jetta when it had about a quarter tank left and I went and filled it up and for some reason the auto stop for the gas didn’t fail again which wasted almost 2 gallons outside of the vehicle. This is been the third time this week that...
