Re: Automatic braking

You're not the first to experience such problems. It's been highlighted before by others over the years.
I don't have it on my current model and would rather not have it at all tbh.

Re: New GTI + delivery

As I've posted before I ordered 3rd week of January, loaded with kit. My dealer said several weeks ago that the factory considered it a priority as it was an early order. (large pinch of salt).

Re: New GTI + delivery

Read today that they are reducing the power of the Golf R by 10bhp because of the new WLTP rules.
Plus dumping the manual version.

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Not good reading these problems. Hope they're not rushing out a load of lemons. After going through hell with my 2010 GTI and having new engines under warranty. My 2015 has been very well behaved, never a problem. Not going through that again and won't hesitate to cancel the order. Sent from my GT-N...

Re: Yet another failure

Good luck with that. I still have firmware issues with the media system when connecting an ipod with a lead. VW never could fix it. I use SD cards instead for music . Car now 3 years old.

Quite pathetic really.
Certainly doesn't induce any kind of excitement for me.

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Mine has a Winter Pack but no headlight washers, used to drive me mad on my old one, a freshly cleaned car getting sprayed with washer fluid... :roll: Looks like they’ve removed headlight washers and heated windscreen washers from the winter pack according to the VW car builder. I took delivery of ...

Re: New GTI + delivery

My GTi + was built last week, as per build week promised on the app. However as a warning the progress was not updated until the following week. It went from build week to left the factory. An hour later I had a text reporting that the build had just started! Got on live chat and had confirmation i...
