Do you really check tyre pressures though

Yep. At times though you can tell they're miles off (usually 4-5psi too high) with the hardness of the ride.

F**k I thought I was anal checking weekly and checking anything done by the stealers but I’d never check tyre pressure right after a service as I’ve never known a technician that could be arsed checking a customers unless they seen a tyre pressure warning

If your dealers service was as bad as some of mine, you'd check everything and call it prudent rather than anal.

You pay £90 an hour for labour and generally get someone who knows f**k all about cars working on them.

They know only what the computer tells them to do.

High air pressure is not something I'd bring up in complaint with the dealers though, I'd just adjust (a good few hours after the car has been static to ensure I was reading cold pressures, as psi goes up 3-4 in use).

One more thing to add to the signage when you take your car in?

" Please don't wash my car with your gritty sponge...and leave the tyre pressures alone!".  :grin:

I do. I like mine done properly by myself.

Do you check them in the dealers car park or when you get home
I have checked pressures in the dealer car park before but usually check them at home after.

Would you have complained if they had been a couple of psi out of spec

My car is 19 plate PP and rattles like mad. It was silent up until 9-10000 miles. Now it's just one after another. I'm well disappointed with the build quality of my car.

Interior noises are my worst nightmares because as soon as I can hear so many I'm thinking off selling the car.  :sad:

I would get the chain reading from vagcom to get an idea of the condition & get the tensioner checked/changed for the latest revision at the very least!

I've not had any issues parking without sensors but I learnt the old school way and have been driving without additional help for 26yrs lol

Snoopy I am hoping to cut & join pipes as a cheap DIY, seen a YouTube video on it  :whistle:but am considering just getting the garage to replace it at the same time as the chain tensioner, only problem is a 2 week wait as the garage is always busy, I've noticed today the car amusing more fuel on short town runs

I’m 18 months into ownership and never had any such problems. Feels very well put together, it has surprised me to read complaints of vw build quality on this forum. Maybe something to do with quality of roads the cars are used on? All I know is mine is solid!
