I've noticed when flooring it in sixth gear on the motorway around 80-90mph and as it's gets to just below 4K revs there a kind of shudder with the car and it's as though it holds back and drives quite jerky. I've absolute no...
  4. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I have a 2008 Rabbit, and it's been a great car. It has about 210K miles on it, so in no way is it perfect, but it's in pretty good shape. A few dents and dings, nothing major, the interior is ok, again not great, as the headliner has given up it's ability to stay up against the roof. The...

  7. Jetta / Bora MK5 / 2005–2010
    Hey guys So a couple of days ago my car went into limp mode after driving around. The gears on the dashboard started flashing and it was stuck in 3rd gear. I wasn't even able to reverse the car. Eventually it shuts off and the only way for it to start again is to let it cool down. I can drive...

    It's a 2014 1.6 TDI Blue Motion automatic. Been down to the village (only 6 kilometres) for a little shopping and 3 minutes into the journey back home the message that the engine was overheating flashed up.

    I've recently bought a '67 Beetle but as I live in London don't have a garage to keep it in. With waxoyling and regular cleaning and waxing will rust still take hold eventually?... Or should it be okay as long as I'm vigilant?

  16. Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    Good morning! I've looked through the manual, and I'm HOPING I'm wrong, but I don't believe there is seat memory for the SE? If anyone can tell me differently, I'd be pretty happy! It's such a SILLY thing, but when my husband drives, he puts the seat back and sideways maybe....lol....?! I...

    My brake pedal hit the floor on the exit ramp coming off the highway, and the brake light came on. I used the gears to slow me down while trying to pump the pedal and it just kept hitting the floor. Eventually some resitance came back in the pedal, and I was able to use the breaks to come to my...

    I have a 2018 Tiguan SEL premium 4motion that I bought brand new July 2018. On November 23 with 3200 miles the low oil yellow light came on. The dealer put in two quarts of oil.
