    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...

  5. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Hi all, I have been running Castrol 20w50 since we bought the car in 2016 and I am thinking of switching to Shell Rotella T4 15w40.

  7. TIGUAN OWNERS CLUB
    We have a 2018 Tiguan that has developed a problem. First the first 7-8 mos. and about 7-8K miles it was perfect. Then, upon acceleration from a standing stop, it stumbles, or seems to bog down, rather than smoothly accelerating. On a couple of occasions, we had plenty of time to cross a...

    Hey there, I'm new to VW, but am 52 and a Mechanic/Shop owner for ever. I'd like to post some pics on here of the teardown etc... because I've received a really nice car, in trade for a 280k Accord, so he could get a job.

  11. Golf MK6 / 2009 -2014
    Had my longtime, very reliable local shop check it out. Genuinely shocked at what they said but: The code comes up as a MAP sensor, but the mechanic said that VW had known about this problem for many years--it's a computer issue! The computer needs to be reflashed. He even showed me on his...

  13. General Volkswagen Discussion
    Hello everyone,, I am in the process of converting/retrofitting my 1984 Quantum to AWD, and I know that the 'Syncro" system was offered on Quantum in 1986, as well as some other VW models. That system uses viscous coupling for the center differential. Since my car came with the Audi 5-cyl...
