Re: PSA: CAR NET shutdown MY19 and earlier

Yes. Our 2018's carnet subscription ran out this past weekend, and when I called them, I was told I could not renew. I didn't realize how much I relied on checking the charge status until it went away! AT&T may be forced to delay their disablement of 3G, given how many cars and other devices (not ju...

Re: CarNet issues

I can't tell you how "dissapointed" I am that this update ended the 2015 e-golf ability to use car-net. Today was my first day wanting to use climate control since I bought my e-golf a few months ago, and it didn't work. After an hour on the phone I was told they discontinued the EV side of car-net...

Re: New 2019 e-Golf SEL Owner

Congratulations! We have a 2015 SEL, and liked it enough to buy out the lease. Then a month later, the 2018s finally showed up, so we got one and we are now a dual e-Golf family. I'm actually surprised your battery degraded to about 19kWh. While I haven't measured mine, i do pay very close attention...

Charging timer issues

I have a new 2018 e-Golf, and also a 2015. I've had all the typical charging timer issues with the 2015 that many of us are familiar with, the most frustrating being that about half the time, the car simply doesn't charge overnight. It's completely unpredictable. I was hoping the 2018, with the buil...

Re: Car-Net expiring

Yep, same here -- mine just went out two days ago. Sounds like they expired a bunch of us all at the same time. My original lease date was 10/15/2015. Pricing is pretty crazy. $199/yr, $378/2yrs. And yeah, they won't budge on price or provide an option to give us only the charging capability. Sucks ...

Re: MY2018

That’s impressive - especially for the first delivery of a model year in short supply! Was there a VW incentive? Or are you just a really good negotiator? ;) I'm not actually sure if it was a VW incentive. This dealership does move an awful lot of cars, and they don't have much space to store them....

Re: MY2018

I just claimed their remaining SEL today :-). They now have 9 SEs listed on cars.com, as of a few hrs ago. Did you get any special discount or incentive on the SEL? Yes. $6K off MSRP. Too good to pass up. Had a Model 3 reservation, but I just really like the e-Golf, so now we have two :-) This was ...
