Re: Charger will not release from charging port 2019 egolf

This happened to me once. No combination of button presses on the car, the remote, or starting/stopping the car helped. When that happens, get a screwdriver or pencil, etc. and push on the metal pin that you can see just above the charging port. This will mechanically override the lock and release t...

Re: Heathed windshield at night

Capital VW in San Jose. I don't remember who they outsourced to and I suspect they probably have several suppliers.

Re: Heathed windshield at night

Well, my windshield broke because of the sorry state of California roads. Here's something interesting: Safelite quoted $1350 for a non-OEM replacement, which my insurance company was willing to pay. Called my dealer and they quoted $863 for the whole job, using OEM glass. I had it replaced at the d...

Re: 2015 e-Golf Car-net Expiry after 36 months?

Did any of you get any satisfaction from VW on this? Just curious. I would file a complaint with your state attorney general. VW has taken functionality away from you after the purchase. This might be illegal and at a minimum is a misrepresentation unless very clearly disclosed to you at purchase. D...

Re: eGolf for Long Commute?

I highly recommend the driver assist package. The adaptive cruise control makes stop and go traffic stress-free. With the SEL I presume you have the lane assist camera. Did you get the Traffic Jam Assist unlocked, by any chance? Is traffic jam assist available on the 2017? Is this one of those secr...

Re: eGolf for Long Commute?

I live in SW San Jose and commute to Pleasanton everyday. About 80 miles r/t. I'm able to do the full roundtrip (including that Sunol Grade on 680) on an 80% charge and usually pull into the driveway with about 20-25 miles remaining. I find that I'm getting an average of 4.4 miles/kwh because of the...

Re: Question for 2017-2019 Owners

What is your real world range working out to be? We love our 2015 so much I am considering a 2017-2019 in addition but curious how much range to expect above what we have now. For example, could I make from Santa Cruz to Mendocino with just one DC fast charge mid way (~225 miles with a couple of hi...

Re: Hello all - new 2018 e-Golf owner (with charging questio

Welcome to the E-Golf club. They're wonderful little cars. I would strongly recommend you contact an electrician to upgrade your electrical service. Even if you find a 16 amp charger, you're going to get pretty frustrated with it in a short time. And the E-Golf is only your first electric car; you'l...
