Re: new ev owner

i've had my 2016 eGolf SEL for just 5 days, but i already have some questions. i thought i'd put them all in a thread and see if anyone has answers. I’ve been reading how some feel it’s more efficient to drive in D0 and coast more. If it’s more efficient to just drive in D0, why did VW go to the tr...

Re: Battery degradation

The battery pack is on a slow boat, but at least it's coming. Good news! It is a bit puzzling to me that VW does not keep any battery packs in stock in the USA, but I suppose there could be many reasons for them not doing this (shipping costs, manufacturing costs, low rate of failure?). I think you...

Re: Battery degradation

Just got a call from my case manager at VW Customer Care: The replacement (new? refurb?) battery has been ordered from Germany and could take up to 60 days to get here.

I don't have any updates on the logistics of the replacement itself, but at least I know they are going to replace the battery!

Re: Battery degradation

Thank you for the update. Does the paperwork from dealer say 67% because of your information or because of VW information? I have always assumed 89% initial net capacity (for 24.2 kWh or 35.8 kWh pack), or 21.5 kWh, so 14.4/21.5=67%. Sorry about your pack. I wonder if you will get a 24 kWh or 36 kW...

Re: Battery degradation

(Old thread, I know, but thought it'd be best to keep it going rather than start anew.) So I finally broke down and sprung for an OBDeleven - decent little device, though I wish we had more insight into the actual meaning of all the fields we're able to view. Using all the info I'd gathered from thi...

Re: Charging fault, charging port locked and won't let go

I don't mean to sound judgy or sarcastic here, but how is it possible for that assembly to be so encrusted in dirt? Was the car submerged in muddy water from a flood or something?

Looks like all the ID4 1st editions are all reserved already. That went really quick!
I wonder if that signifies high demand or low allotment for the US?

edit: According to Greencarreports.com, 2000 1st edition ID.4 have been allocated to the US.

Re: ID.4 Reveal today

I mean I'd be more tempted if I didn't already have my E-golf. As is I was pretty impressed by the ID.4 reveal today. 83KWh battery in a car that's $39,995 MSRP is pretty impressive. Lots of cool gadgets and gizmos as well, and I thought it was a pretty nice looking car too. Not amazing, but not of...

Re: ID.4 Reveal today

Understand your POV, but that $100 is fully refundable and buys you a place in the queue. If you find you do like it, you may not be able to get one for quite a while if demand is high enough.

OTOH, should you ever buy a first year car...?

Re: 12V Battery Replacement Questions

Uh, definitely YMMV. I've had the 12v disconnected for more than a few hours on multiple 2019 eGolfs without issue. Sometimes you get the Christmas lights on startup but a turning it off and on a few times and a drive around the block always returns everything to normal in my experience. Maybe it v...
