Racking up the niggles for the dealer to fix
« on: 05 January 2022, 09:09 »
So despite my car for the recall software update before Christmas, it’s made no difference. I’ve been told the ‘big fix’ is imminent, and to be patient.  The annoying vibration is still there, although it sounds more like the passenger door card area now. Annoyingly, everytime I get in the car now, I get a ‘Manoevre braking not working’ and a ‘Front PDC not working, clean sensors’ despite the car being clean. On top of that, I’m still getting the random SOS fault briefly. Really hope this update fixes all the software issues, it’s starting to become annoying

Just booked mine in at vw Chelmsford, I ran through your list and the faults on the update site. I’m on 1803 and they have confirmed that there is a major software update that will be carried out to the car. Have to wait three weeks before it can go in as it’s a 2 day job (apparently) and I need a loan car.

If you read the TPI you need to describe the problem how they do and then they will do it... No recall.

I was wondering today if there will be 1664 1666 etc owners who will be soon looking towards the next car having never driven their Mk 8 in full working order.

Yeah mine is fourteen months old and... The 16xx were the initial batch of gti/clubby that were taken as dealer stock. Any 70 reg and most of 21 reg... Which is most of the gti's out there. Obviously not R's or ed45's.

Mine was one of the first on the road and is now error free.

Mine is December 2020 registered and is generally fine.
The odd passing glitch but nothing terrible (so far, touch wood) so I won’t be rushing for an update and in fact am dreading changing car in a few years as I can’t think of anything I’d actually want to replace it with.
