I wanted to quickly share this in case someone is going through the same issue. I started leasing the e-Golf in the beginning of the year. It’s perfect for me. Work is about 15 miles away and we have free charging at work.
6 months later, I started noticing a screeching noise when I accelerate from a stop. The noise usually fades away once I go above 10mph.
I brought the car to service. Since the noise didn’t happen frequently, I decided to bring them video proof. Unfortunately, they were not able to replicate the issue.
Fast forward 2 months. The noise started to become more frequent and even louder. I went to VW service again and insisted to test drive the car with a technician. This time, I was able to replicate it with them present.
The technician knew what it immediately. The culprit was a GLAZED ROTOR. They cleaned up both rotors and break pads. Havent heard the noise since.
This is only after 6 months
of normal stop and go driving (Los Angeles traffic). I do have a couple of hills on my way to work. I love to drive in B mode when going downhill. Do you think driving in B mode often caused this issue?
