    Steering locked. 2020 e-golf.

    Why use jumper cables?

    Brake Pedal travel excessive

    Why not assume the simple answer of air in the brake line? I think you should get a brake fluid flush done again after you tell them about your problems, or go somewhere else for the work.

    Great to hear. Thanks. I have never had CarPlay issues on my 2017. Currently running latest iOS software.

    Battery Capacity

    OBD Eleven and Car Scanner a show the BMS estimate of usable capacity. I have 9-10% deg at 66,000 miles and live in SF Bay Area. I agree 70% seems odd, which is why I asked for kWh value.

    Battery Capacity

    ID.3s are not sold in the USA so I have no first hand experiences. I have read people tend to like the e-Golf interior and HMI better but if you need the range, the e-Golf can not compete.

    Battery Capacity

    Functional testing. Also can use OBDEleven or Car Scanner to read what BMS estimates. Detailed in past threads.

    Battery Capacity

    You could ask dealer for usable capacity in kWh, so you can verify its calculation. Assuming number is really 70%, I would not buy it as there are probably plenty of other ones on the market. Is it being offered at a significant discount?

    Sure. I picked a link at random. It is still greed. https://www.autonews.com/article/20170724/RETAIL01/170729911/crossovers-and-suvs-fatten-profit-margins

    Battery Capacity

    Is car in a hot place? Yes, warranty applies, but do not know if a new pack with 100% capacity will be given as VW only promises 70% or better for warranty. My car has 66,000 miles and 6 years and has 90% capacity.

    I don't think they are intentionally conspiring, but they know people are willing to pay extra for a lifted civic thanks to the marketing that makes these SUVs sexy, so the lifted civic costs more.

    10,000 ID 4's to be made in USA

    VW has been manufacturing the ID.4 in Tennessee since July 2022.

    I agree. SUVs make a higher profit margin, so that’s what we get in USA. It would be great to see ID.2 in USA, but when? 2025? 2026? EX30 looks like a good option in 2024.

    No ID.3. VW's only BEV on sale now is ID.4.

    2015 eGOLF charging question/issue

    I would stay away. There are plenty of correctly working e-Golfs. FYI to keep the "ignition" on, you need to keep the key in the car.

    VW no longer sells compact EV hatchbacks in the USA. Let us know when we can buy an e-Golf equivalent vehicle. Thanks!

    2016 e-Golf won't charge - shows Red LED

    while unlikely, maybe both of your stations are faulty. Can you borrow a third to try out? What errors are showing up when you use OBDEleven?

    2016 e-Golf won't charge - shows Red LED

    I see the charge port as part of the high voltage battery system, which I think is warrantied for 5 years or 60,000 miles. Looks like a tough job for someone with little experience doing this work. Best of luck. Please let us know what fixes the issue. Based on the TSB, it looks like the pin...
