    I have a 2013 Jetta Hybrid. After putting gas in my car, the transmission will not shift past gear 5. It will also struggle to get past about 60mph. The Hybrid indicator will go to about 8, just shy of the Turbo kicking in. I can switch over to manual and shift to 6th and 7th gear but it will...
  2. ID Series VW Electric Vehicles
    I have been driving VW since I turned 16 and am super interested in the ID.4. I LOVE it, except for the range. Do we know if they plan to release a longer range version at any point? Or even other models in hybrids? I am leaning towards a RAV4 hybrid for the range. (I drive 100miles per day for...
  3. 2.0 TSI and TFSI (EA888 Gen 3) Engine Forum
    Hi, I have a cracked engine block in my 2013 AUDI A6 C7 Hybrid. These cars are pretty rare, so it's not that easy to find engine with exact same code. As far as I know part number of my engine block is 06H 103 011 AM, so if I wanted to only change block of my engine, blocks from CAEB, CBF, CCT...
  4. Golf/GTI VI
    I recently had the clockspring break (lost steering wheel controls, heard the click/plastic break when turning the wheel; all confirmed by dealer scan when I took it in for a recall). DIY replacement because I didn't want to pay stealer costs. Some steering wheel controls now work, some don't...

    The Lamborghini Aventador is one of a dying breed of big displacement, big cylinder engines. But it’s not dead yet. Car and Driver reports that the V12 will return with the Aventador’s successor, albeit with the addition of an electric motor. Loathers of electrification may be disappointed to...

    An electric motor sits between Audi’s stalwart 2.0-liter engine and its 7-speed. Altogether, they combine to make 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. All of which means that the Q5 TFSIe can get to 60 mph a second faster than the standard Q5. It also means 65 MPGe, according to the EPA, or 20 miles...

    We’ve only just taken the veil off the Mk8 and already we’re asking about the next generation. But for all those who are worried that their favorite car will be replaced by EVs and SUVs, fear not, because the Golf should last at least one more generation. That’s according to Lars Hentschel...

    Lamborghini took the wraps off a brand-new hybridized supercar called the Sián this week . Limited to just 63 examples—which coincidentally is the year that Lamborghini was founded— we first picked up the name in a trademark application published last week. Another trademark application...

    Volkswagen just filed to reserve a bunch of interesting hybrid and electric vehicle-related badges with the European Intellectual Property Office. This is a VW enthusiast site, so for our readers, the most interesting of these badges is the one that seems performance-related: Power Hybrid. It's...

    A hybrid Volkswagen Golf GTI?!? Not so fast. Expect the seminal hot hatch to stick to what it knows best, a gas engine, for the next generation, says a new report. Rumors circulated last fall that VW could be making the GTI a mild-hybrid. Adding some electric goodness to the hatch. Now Autocar...

    Volkswagen Group is looking at recalling up to 124,000 EVs and hybrids wearing VW, Audi, and Porsche nameplates. It's not because of the cars, it's because of their chargers. It turns out that the charger supplied for the vehicles could contain cadmium. Cadmium is a heavy metal. One that is...

    [This feature is part of an ongoing series of tech explainers. If there are any automotive technologies or cool features you'd like explained, let us know in the comments.] Last week, Volkswagen announced that it would be bringing a hybrid system to the next-generation Golf when the Mk 8...

    Volkswagen is adding a trio of new drivetrain systems to help the company offer lower emissions choices in its vehicles. There will be a new mild-hybrid, natural gas, and an all-new diesel hybrid option. The 48-volt hybrid system was announced yesterday. It will use a belt-driven starter...

    With three overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1 car was already going to go down in history as one of the best racecars of the modern era. And after setting a frankly crazy record set this week, the 919 Hybrid just became even more iconic. The now-retired...

    Like hot tubs and leather pants, electric vehicles are something best eased into. Or at least that’s what Volkswagen believes. Although it’s diving headlong into the electric vehicle market, VW doesn’t think that all drivers will adopt electric vehicles right away, so it wants to ease European...

    Lamborghini was on such a hot streak of obstinate heroism, promising us naturally aspirated V12s well into the future , but now they've admitted that the V10 that powers the Huracan will need hybridization when that model is replaced. The Huracan's followup isn't expected until 2022, so it...

    Lookit. I’m not going to draw a line in the sand about induction. I won’t even say that I prefer one form induction (forced or otherwise) over the other, but I think we can all agree that having some big ol’ naturally aspirated engines in the world is a good thing and it looks like Lamborghini...

    Every one of the Volkswagen Group’s 300 models will be offered with some form of electric assistance by 2030, according to CEO Matthias Müller, who spoke earlier today ahead of the Frankfurt motor show. Electrification will range from a 48-volt “mild-hybrid” system to a fully electric model...

    The plug-in version of the A8L will be Audi’s first to use inductive charging, instead of a power cord. Owners and (probably more likely) chauffeurs alike will be able to simply drive over a charging pad that automatically charges the A8L plug-in’s batteries. The extra-cost option puts a coil...
