Re: Driving in B mode often can cause issues?

The second statement you make "In normal driving almost all braking is regen unless a panic stop." is only true if you keep your car in any of the regen modes available (D1, D2, D3 or B) and never use the brake pedal. You do know that while not in any regen mode (like plain D) pressing on the brake...

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

Just received a one page Maintenance Supplement to "All Model Year 2019 VW Gasoline Engine Vehicles" - it adds info about changing the brake fluid 3 years from the original in-service date then every 2 years after, regardless of mileage. I have not checked the Warranty and Maintenance booklet to see...

Re: Charging using stock EVSE ('charging cord') in hot weather - can it get too hot?

Hmmm. Is this the TE or the Clipper Creek EVSE? I have the TE EVSE and got the "overheat" warning lights for the first time a few days ago. I left the cord in full sun and didn't think about it, so when I returned a few hours later, I was surprised to see both red lights on and the green light flas...

Re: Charging using stock EVSE ('charging cord') in hot weather - can it get too hot?

Update: something is certainly not right with the cord... After initially thinking it's the hot weather, I've been keeping it inside the house (rather than the trunk). So the ambient temp should no longer be an issue yet the cable is still not registering anything when plugged in. Trying to 'super c...

Re: Charging using stock EVSE ('charging cord') in hot weather - can it get too hot?

I have not encountered this issue. I think your conclusion makes sense. How hot it is where you live? The TE EVSE has a maximum temp of 45C, and if it sitting in the sun, I can certain imagine it could get that hot easily as the case is black. Can you fashion a shade for the EVSE? Thanks for the ti...

Charging using stock EVSE ('charging cord') in hot weather - can it get too hot?

I have been using the stock EVSE (made by TE; not Delphi) to 'trickle' charge my 2019 eGolf. It has been working just fine. My standard 120V outlet is in full sun for about 1/2 day (from early morning to about noon) so the cable is exposed to some extreme temperatures, particularly now when it's hot...

Re: Does the 2019 use different wiper blades?

Highly unlikely. Got the following set to fit perfectly on both of my 2017 GTI and 2019 eGolf (BOSCH A863S (650/450mm / 26/18inches).

Re: Constant squealing noise while moving

It may be worth checking whether you have the dust shield rubbing on the rotor.

Re: 2020 e-Golf cancelled

I also have no idea why this 'news' is suddenly making rounds around the interwebs (Autoblog, Jalopnik, etc). Like the report says, it has been announced in October of 2019. Strange...
