Re: Scratches inside headlight

realize this is an older thread. What you are seeing is called plastic crazing & are stress cracks. The usual cause is a manufacturing design flaw & in the case of the photo shown on this thread, it "should be" an issue that should be reported to the NHTSA to force VW into a recall...

Re: Chrome Trim Recall

It has been lobbied for a long time to get this recall to happen. I have read accounts from owners who got chrome" slivers" under their finger nails. We do not have this wear on our 2019. "Coupled with Sunlight wear." Primary culprit are people who wear jewelry on their right han...

Re: What’s a “good” miles/kWh?

I just don't see how it would be possible to average above 6 miles/kWh over the long term, unless maybe you're always driving downhill. Over 7 seems impossible in any sort of normal driving situation. Maybe you mean kilometers/kWh? The best I've ever done for a single driving session was 6.3 miles/...

Re: USA Maintenance Supplement re: Brake Fluid Change -anyone else?

I got the same last week in the mail. As I am also a Pre-booker for the ID4, I immediately thought my letter from VWoA was for my Pre-Book, so I opened it like a kid at Christmas. Total BUST. Placed the supplement into the glove box book.

Re: e-golf owner in seattle

I am looking for a reliable and honest service tech to help me with my 2016 e-golf. The service light is on and I really don't want to drop several $100 to get it turned off. I am having a hard time determining what they might do for $300. That is what the local VW dealer want for a scheduled servi...

Re: How to disable automatic 3-blink turn signal?

I would not be surprised if this value could be adjusted via OBD11. For me, I would like to adjust it to a longer duration. Increasing it from 3 to 5 flashes. If the flasher design can be adjusted via OBD11, it would figure other adjustments could be made as well.

Re: Purchasing an eGolf in Massachusetts

Scott, Did you make that trip up to Windsor? Sorry, it has been a busy March. If you haven't, I realize that there is not much north of Brattleboro DC charger. You'd basically get up to Windsor (best efficiency up Rt 5.) There is a free Level 2 at Annes Plainfield Country Store just north of there. ...

Re: 2020 e-Golf cancelled

The 2019 was the last year of the MK VII. The Mark 8's are all Hybrid oriented. Personally I think it is a backwards step, but I am seeing that VW has supply chain issues for "all BEV" for the VW "group" The output for the ID series batteries isn't optimized & also supply cha...
