  1. 2012 Passat ABS Module Refusing to accept reprogramming

    General Volkswagen Discussion
    Replaced ABS module with a used part off of the same exact car. 2012 Passat SE. Took it to the dealership, module won't accept the reprogramming. Told me they usually do it online, but are trying to manually program it. Anyone else had this problem? Tips?
  2. Pirelli Sidewall Bubble

    I have a 2018 VW Tiguan with 11,000 miles on it. I just noticed today that my passenger side front tire has a bubble in it. I didn’t buy the tire warranty from the dealership. What are my options on what to do, help! The tires are scorpion Pirelli

    Passat B7 Forums
    Hello everyone. Just purchased a 2012 Passat SEL TDI with 130K. Every possible routine maintenance was performed at a local VW dealership. So no issues. However, I have some issues with programming the phone—I’m using an Android, remote start, changing some of the other owners preset settings...
  4. Turbo replacement

    My 2013 Tiguan is in need of a turbocharger after the dreaded P0299 code and having a shop inspection revieled the worst case senerio. I've found a great private shop to deal with to avoid paying enormous costs at the dealership. My question is does anyone know which part manufacture was the...

  6. Fuel filler cover won't open

    Golf MK6 / 2009 -2014
    Went to the petrol station today to fill up and found that the filler cover won't open! As far as I can tell it is a problem that it has not actually unlocked, rather than that it has unlocked but is stuck on the 'press to open' catch. The Owner Manual says that it can not be opened manually...
  7. Hello All

    Tiguan New To Forum / Frequently Asked Questions
    I just picked up a 2019 Tiguan S with 4Motion last night. Excited to be back in a Volkswagen. I loved by 2011 Jetta TDI but my family outgrew it, so it was traded for a minivan awhile back. I was in the market for a small suv and my dealership experience when negotiating was great! Glad I...
  8. Volkswagen GTI Dallas Rims

    Golf MK7 / 2015 and up
    Basically brand new, they were removed off the dealership car at 10 miles. They are 18 inches in diameter and 7.5 inches wide. I am asking 750 or best offer. I am in the Tampa Florida area so drop off would be great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. 2007 Rabbit No acceleration

    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...
  11. Hunting for an old Rabbit Drag Car

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    This is a long shot but I'm looking for an old VW Rabbit race car that my dad and his friend used to run at Milan drag strip (Michigan). They raced primarily in the late 1970s early 1980s. The car was owned by Brian Luman Volkswagen LTD (VW dealership on Woodward Ave in Ferndale Michigan)...
  12. 2007 Fuel Pump Issue? 2.5

    VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    I replaced the fuel pump in my 2007 (2.5 gas) about 10,000 miles ago. I did go with an aftermarket version. After several dealership visits and several $$$ to get pressure/filter straight it finally seemed to get sorted. Has been running just fine but the last few weeks I'm starting to get the...

    Hi gang, I'm new to the club and need some advice. I actually posted a reply to a thread by Thelastrabbit? a while ago but haven't heard back. I have an '07 MKV 4 dr.

    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...

    Hello all, I have a brand new 2019 Jetta SE that is making a weird grinding/scratchy humming sound when I accelerate to around 25-30mph and goes away after that. No noise when I decelerate down to 25-30 MPH. I don't know what could possibly be the issue, since it's a brand new car. I will have...

  20. Passenger side mirror fell off.

    VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    My mirror just popped right out as I was leaving home. I did not even know at first. I heard a noise and thought it was some stuff in the back of the car rattling around. My brother found my mirror on the ground shattered in three pieces. Is this a common thing? Anyone else have this happen...
