Re: Crazy to attempt 910 mile road Trip in 2019 eGolf SE ?

Thank you all for the advice. I like the idea of alternating two L3 DCFC to 90% with one L2 full charge. Thanks for reminding me about the elevation changes I should fully charge before attempting Mt. Shasta & Siskiyou Passes. Plug Share shows the last 3 charges before hitting Seattle would be the W...

Crazy to attempt 910 mile road Trip in 2019 eGolf SE ?

I need to transport a 2019 eGolf SE (w/ DCFC) from San Jose, CA to Seattle in October and am wondering if it is a crazy idea to drive it there myself. Using the Plug Share Trip Planner it appears L3 chargers exist along most of the route. (no gaps greater than 100 miles) I am assuming the following:...

verdict: best practice charging % max for battery longevity

Have 2015 SEL with 43K miles and was delay charging only to 90% up until car-net subscription expired. Now immediate charging to 100% on a regular basis using level2 EVSE. Never used DC fast charge. Will this impact battery longevity? How can we see current battery capacity without bringing car to d...

Re: Delayed charging with Clipper Creek EVSEs fixed

We swapped the HCS-40 for the CS-40 several months ago and that also fixed the delayed charging. There are 2 other problems however. 1-The J1772 plug gets "stuck" in the eGolf. This happened to us 5 times over a 2 month period where we were unable to release the plug from the car. Twice it required ...

Is battery capacity impacted by frequent 100% L2 charging?

I have never been able to get a definitive answer to the battery life question: Is battery capacity impacted by frequent 100% L2 charging? The printed manual says one thing, car-net says another. Sunnyvale VW doesn't know nor does VW customer care. If I use a level 1 or 2 charger, is there any reaso...

Re: Car-net and delayed charging

I am curious if you've tried getting delayed charging to work with the included Level 1 charger. Can anyone explain how the eGolf is supposed to wake up and start charging? Does the car A: Wake up on it's own based on calculating time of day, departure time and time to charge to desired %? or B: The...

Re: Car-net and delayed charging

Following up on PowdaSuga's experience, I too have eGolf SEL with ClipperCreek HCS-40 serviced at Sunnyvale VW. Regional Customer Care rep assigned since April. Brought the car in twice for the delayed charging issue. 2nd time dealer kept the car for a week and ended up replacing the "Control Module...

Re: Car-net and delayed charging

Thanks for the advice and help.
My eGolf is now at Sunnyvale VW.
I've connected the ClipperCreek support folks with the Sunnyvale VW and VW corporate people.
Hopefully they will talk to each other and get this working.
Classic multi-party interoperability problem. No single throat to choke.

Car-net and delayed charging & port locking - any progress

According to my VW Customer Care rep AND ClipperCreek support, there has been no resolution to the "Delayed Charging" problem with the e-Golf. I was told there are several people who have reported the exact same problem. - VW told me that engineering understands the issue and it has been escalated t...

Car-net and delayed charging & port locking - any progress?

My VW customer care reps calls me every couple of weeks to tell me there has been no resolution to the "Delayed Charging" problem with the e-Golf. This issue, combined with the inability to turn off the charge port locking function are serious issues with the overall value proposition of this vehicl...
