  1. Jetta / Bora MK6 / 2011 and up
    I own a 2015 Jetta TdI SEL and the car started to crank longer, each day for about 2 weeks, then the starter just clicked and wouldn't start. I took the battery out, charged it and it started doing the same thing, cranking slowly again. The battery is 5 years old and I want to replace it. My...
  2. Beetle Owners Club
    We recently had an early cold snap with a very wet snow and the car was parked outside. The next day, when my wife went out to go to work, the windows would not automatically lower to get into the car. Finally, she was able to get in, but then the window stayed down the 1/4" instead of going...
  3. Jetta / Bora MK4 / 1999-2004
    Hi, It shuts off at 180-190. If it's cold out and I keep the manual fan and don't let it get to those temps it runs and drives all day, but won't run or start warm. Needs to cool down at least a few minutes before going again. It has new coolant temp sensor, and manual fan( the other ones...

    Howdy from Toronto. 2012 black Darth Vader car has 2 non functioning headlights. I’m hoping it’s just a fuse. But from a diagram i found it looks like each low beam has it’s own fuse. Now i’m Nervous cuz it’s unlikely either both fuses blew or both headlights blew. so I opened interior fuse...
  5. GTI Photo Gallery
    Hello all. Just joined the club tonight. Thought I would show off my upcoming project. This is my first car I bought brand new in 1983. It’s been sitting in our barn since the early ‘90s. I’m thinking about dragging it out and see if I can be inspired to start a restoration. Wish me luck.

  7. Jetta / Bora MK6 / 2011 and up
    The other day my horn on my 2015 Jetta GLI got super weak. It has the OEM horn and is normally very loud but I noticed it is putting out half the normal sound. I am somewhat of new owner of the car and is my first VW so I'm having to learn where things are and what they look like. I'm having a...

    I hope someone can help. 99 beetle 2.0 auto trans 145k. I was driving it one day and I noticed it was not shifting out of 1st gear. It did give me a code of defective MAF. If I clean the MAF will that fix the problem? Do I need to buy a new MAF? Does the MAF affect the trans? Any help...

    Just Hi from sunny Adelaide, Australia! My current drive is a red 1990 Golf Cabriolet that is undergoing some tidying up and upgrading. I've been a lifetime fan of VWs from early bugs, buggies, combis and now my first water cooled. Still fun, learning new tricks every day. cheers Andreas
  14. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I just joined this club, and hope someone has experienced, or have knowledge of the same problem as I have with my 2007 Rabbit. The local VW dealership is not able to pinpoint the problem, and by process of elimination the cost could easily be more than the value of the car. Cold or warm, when...

  20. Tiguan New To Forum / Frequently Asked Questions
    Just joined the site hoping to converse with other owners. In August we bought a black 2016 Tiguan S 4 Motion with 28k. The Wife drove it until this Monday! At 6' 3" it felt cramped for me and the black was a real pain to keep clean. On Saturday at a gas station a person parked next to us...
