Re: Finance offers changed waiting on delivery

With the Bank of England contemplating a future with negative interest rates, the customer may be paid to take out loans.

Re: Car servicing in lockdown

My dealership reopened this week for other than key workers. Mine goes in later this month. I was asked if I'd like to move it forward but the original date is ok. I'm quite happy walking into the garage.

Re: Shipping

Mine went into transit on the 13th of March and is sat at the dealer. I rang on Tuesday for an update and was told I would get a call back within 24 hours. Next day no call so I called them to be met with "we have over 3000 cars to sort so no you wont get a call back I don't know what you were expe...

Re: Help! Rear wheel humming noise. Polo GTi

Sorry for the double post, but does anyone have any updates? VW hasn’t replied to me in over a month (slipped my mind to chase them up because of work), but going to start chasing them up again to get a resolution. My dealership contacts VW on a fairly regular basis about this and as of yet there i...

Re: New Pricelist, Effective 01/05/2020

There is still money out there, though not necessarily best spent with VW. There are more groups than key workers or furloughed staff.

Re: What is the situation with VW main dealers?

Mine was due for the first service next week. The dealership is only doing work for key workers, which is understandable. I'm being told next booking available is May 1st which I've secured. I asked if there was any relaxation in the up to 1000 miles or month over but it doesn't appear so at this ti...

Re: Help! Rear wheel humming noise. Polo GTi

Mine were too at the beginning of the fix. Now they sound like herding cows.

No Geneva motor show to present it to the world.

Re: Big Brother makes an Appearence

Certainly don't like the GTI badge at the rear being centred. Read an article this week saying that all this extra tech being loaded into cars these days was often not understood or was not being used. Possibly an age thing but a fair proportion of responders saying that they simply just get into th...

My dealership today informed me that VW had not updated any news regarding new pad design.

At worst it's slightly embarrassing, pulling up in a smart new car and grimacing as you put it into reverse.

Re: Help! Rear wheel humming noise. Polo GTi

I'm thinking pre production. The car would have been put through it's paces. Is it just a fluke that the cars being tested over the months didn't have the problem?!

Do VW actually test drive their cars, how was it not picked up?

Re: Help! Rear wheel humming noise. Polo GTi

My dealership phoned me on Friday to say they've been chasing VW for a fix for this problem. They've been told that at the moment VW do not know how to remedy the problem. So good luck with the complaint.
