Re: Problem! (Gho5tR1der)

My 337 is 24 hours old with speedo (it works when engin is cold but not when it warms up) amd airbag (warning light is on) problems. This is my first VW and not happy about the problems. VW should have a better quality control program in Brasil.

Re: Problem! (Gho5tR1der)

I had intermittant brake squeel during the first 1500 miles...
I took it in to make sure they were wearing correctly and my tech said they were ok and it is not an uncommon occurance on new VWs
they are not squeeling now
at 3500
should go away, go in and have a tech make sure they are wearing properly and drive some more

More than just the 337's are coming from Brazil now. Every GTI and Golf is now made there. And there is not an increase in problems with Brazil made cars, at one point, the Brazil factory was more in spec than the Wolfsburg factory. If VW actually noticed a problem with cars being manufactured in Brazil, don't you think they'd do something about it?
