Re: Can you do remote start with CarNet App?

You can't "start" the car remotely. The only things you can do remotely are start/stop climate control and window defrosting, lock/unlock doors, and begin/end charging. If the key fob's battery dies, there's a tiny little slot underneath the left side of the door handle that you use to pr...

Re: Can you do remote start with CarNet App?

My son was out with the car and the key fob battery was totally out, no warning! I remotely unlocked the car for him and he was looking for the sensor to get the car started. I was looking at the app trying to find "remote start". Similar situation happened to me with my Tesla when my phon...

Can you do remote start with CarNet App?

I couldn't find a screen/button in the CarNet App to do remote start. I can do remote unlock.
Anyone knows what the user interface is for remote start?
TIA.

Additional Driver & Carnet App access

I want to let my son drive my 2019 e-Golf and have access to Carnet App from his phone with his own login. I looked into adding a driver but the FAQ on the web site only specifically gave instructions for a 2020 for adding driver. Is it really model year specific? The other alternative maybe to have...

Re: Rust on metal frame inside the dashboard

Thanks for the input, it is just surprising to see that for a 15 months old car in area that is not even exposed to the elements.

Rust on metal frame inside the dashboard

I have a 2019 eGolf for a little bit over a year. I just popped out the change tray to the left of the steering wheel and the panel on the left side of the dashboard to look at the fuse box. Then I noticed rust on the metal frame. I live in northern California, a very dry area. It is very rare to se...

Re: CarNet issues

If VW thinks they can challenge Tesla on smart cars (and I think their ID.3 looks like a really good EV) with the pitiful software app/service, called CarNet, they may as well go back to manufacturing diesel cars.

Re: CarNet issues

I am able to download the latest iOS app. I don't think it is faster than before. The SOC screen looks like an after-thought, and the chart and estimate time until full were wrong. I had 37 miles left and SOC showed 75% full; I need 4+ hrs to fully charge and the status showed "0m until full&qu...

Re: CarNet issues

The web portal finally works for me this morning but not the iOS app. It kept telling me I need to upgrade to the latest, but I already have the latest!
A car company trying to pretend they can do software...

Re: Expected tire life on an e-Golf

I had a 2016 SE and had 32k miles on the OEM tires before I traded it for a 2019. The tires were still in good shape, except the traction which were not good from the beginning. I live in northern California, during rainy seasons, the tires lose traction very easily starting from a dead stop. I also...
