Re: Owner's Manual

We were able to save the VW online manual (in Safari browser) as a WebArchive.
Then loaded that into an iPad app (GoodReader) which accommodates many formats.
Works great!

Re: battery capacity like in a Leaf

I don't know about the Leaf, but in the e-Golf the lower dial on the right (#6 in the image) shows the battery charge in 1/16 increments –

Scary mystery sound ...

Our 2019 e-Golf SE, about 8 weeks old, just caused some concern. Wife was driving home from errands, stopped at mailbox near our house. When she started up, there was a terrible scraping sound from somewhere in the front end. Seemed more from left front wheel area. Sounded like sheet metal scraping ...

Re: Set delayed charge to be ready at 7 AM, but it stops at

Thanks tp both of you for the responses. I think that miscalculation of finishing time is part of it, but then it sure started late ... Anyway the 120V EVSE is now stored in the trunk, and we are happy with a $199 16A Level2 EVSE from Zencar (Amazon B075GJK2S9) which fits a 20A 240V receptacle we ha...

Complained to VW and dealer. Had to live with it. The car did not even have the Park Pilot system. Solution – 2019 e-Golf, h...

Set delayed charge to be ready at 7 AM, but it stops at 8 AM

We have had this 2019 e-Golf for just 3 weeks. The 2016 e-Golf that we turned back seemed to operate correctly. With the 2019's supplied level 1 charger, we used the manager to have the charge complete by 7AM. But, It seems to keep going until 8AM. I am wondering if there is a logic flaw that applie...
