  1. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Hey guys, first off let me apologize if I'm doing this wrong. Just joined after purchasing a one owner 08 rabbit last week with only 52k miles. But since it wasn't driven a ton the PO missed the 40k maintenance so I'm attempting to remedy some of the more DIYable aspects myself before paying any...
  2. Golf MK6 / 2009 -2014
    Hi all, I just bought a golf with the 1.4 TSI 160BHP engine. From further reading on the internet these engines are prone to failure due to not being maintained correctly and general flaws in the engine. Does anyone have reccomendation for the best oil to use and the best fuel type/ Octane for...

  4. GTI MK7 / 2015 and up
    I am the owner of a new 2019 GTI-S. I would like to obtain detailed information about the car such as specifications, drawings, component descriptions, and maintenance instructions. For all of the previous VWs I have owned (this is my ninth), I have been able to obtain this kind of information...
  5. TIGUAN OWNERS CLUB
    I'm considering a new Tiguan and so I registered here. Unfortunately this forum is basically dead and there is little or no discussion about newer models, and actually little or no discussion period. Is that because the Tiguan has very few problems?? :-)
  6. 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...
  7. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I am looking to do some fluid maintenance on the car since they have been in there for 5+ years. For the brakes I imagine any old DOT3 should work as stated on the cap, or does it need to be something more specific? For the power steering, I have the red cap and I believe it takes Dexron II...
  8. Passat Owners Club
    I have the above car. I have just under 80K miles on it. I drive a bunch, clearly. I've followed all of the maintenance schedules and then some, but have this re-occurring issue with acceleration. Occasionally, out of the blue, the car has a big lag in shift from gear to gear, most prevalent...
  9. Golf MK7 / 2015 and up
    Our 2016 Golf recently had a leak around the sun roof which caused some staining of the fabric on the ceiling. Fortunately, it was fixed under warranty. The service manager told us that the water drains for the sun roof are small and need to be cleaned out periodically. He suggested that we pay...
  10. Air-cooled / FAQs
    Just found your site; I have owned my 74 "orange" Love Bug since new. Purchased during the fuel crisis of 1973...traded my Olds 442 for it. I live in Texas, so stopped driving it in 1980 when we had a string of 40+ 100 degree days. I retired in 2016 and decided it was time to "un-retire" the...
  11. VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    I just went over 101K and my car is running flawlessly. Always has been a stellar performer, and it has been a a perfect 10 in the maintenance dept. (although I do keep up on it and take really good care of it) However, once you break the six digit threshold, there is more serious preventative...

  13. Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    Looks like my water pump has gone out...mechanic researching (non vw guy...my mechanic), 96k miles. Since they have to rip into it to potentially replace it is there anything I should also do during this maintenance w/ the mileage on the vehicle? Also, any ball park on $$$$$ of something like...
  14. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Hey everyone, so I have a 81 rabbit pickup with the 1.6D ever since I bought the truck I've had trouble with air in the fuel lines, it's only when the truck isn't running the fuel rushes back to the tank, when it's running it's fine, I have pressure tested the system and I found no fuel leaking...
