It might cost more for the MK7 because I think 5.5-6 quarts are needed. If it's anywhere close to $20 though it'll be worth it. Thanks for the info

Ok good. I'll keep Atlantic in mind.

I personally have had pretty good success with Platinum VW in Hicksville. (I believe they are under new management, the woman who was running the place, a few years back doesn't appear to be there?) - Specifically, my Service Manager Steven Fox has been really good. Only issues I've had with them on any of the past 3 vehicles, is their techs SUCK at doing interior trim pieces, so if your going in there for something that may need them removed, make note, take pictures. They will fix their mistakes, and even replace with new, but its still a headache. All other warranty work has been really good.

That's what scares me with the dealers. It's the infamous sunroof creaking that has plagued the MK7 platform.

I know it's a seal issue since if i tilt it open or open the sunroof the noise disappears but alot of techs dont troubleshoot in the right sequence and they jump the gun and start disassembling the entire headliner.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

I have the same problem with my sunroof making noise when its closed after it had been opened. The seal needs to be lubricated to make the noise go away. I use gummi pflege (https://tinyurl.com/y7q28hv4) every 3-4 months on all of my door seals and the sunroof seal. If you wanna go above and beyond you can get Krytox (https://tinyurl.com/y7tz6na2) which is expensive but it will last much longer than the gummi stuff. Dont waste your time going to the dealership with this, unless you like wasting your time.

BTW VW of Huntington is a great dealership. Awesome prices and their service is great.

Thank you LI_GTI_GUY, i appreciate you taking the time to reply in such detail. I was reading about the seal lubes in the sunroof threads that i came across. I'll take your advice and lube it myself.

I still need to go in for the MIB2 firmware update to fix the random glitches and freezing. But at least its only a matter of inserting an SD card. If only they posted that stuff online and we were able to update it ourselves.

No problemo

I agree about making the door / sunroof seal issues more common knowledge to the average VW / Audi owner. I think it should be in the owners manual or part of the maintenance schedule considering how many VW and Audis have the same issues with noises coming from the seals.

You made me realize that all these years of being thorough with my vehicle's maintenance that I have been neglecting the door seal, sunroof seal/track maintenance. I'm ordering some of that gummi fledge stuff a.s.a.p. Thanks again

Had my car serviced by Platinum VW in Levittown for the 10k service. Thought they were going to hassle me for having a muffler delete, but when I went to pick the car up they said that the car sounded great. Even washed the outside and vacuumed the inside for me.

Recently got the GTi back from Riverheadbay VW. While they did give me a loaner the service itself was a joke.

They couldn't hear the sunroof and the service advisor told me even if they did hear that something was wrong with the sunroof they would not be able to fix it because my squeaks and rattle warranty has expired. I got VWOA involved and i have a case number. I'm gonna be taking it to another dealer, the question is which dealer to use.

I just realized I haven't been on here since my lube comment... luckily still no trips to the dealer for me, but I put spacers on my car this weekend. Different length bolts front and back. I hope they don't screw that up at a rotation...

Anyone have luck getting an oil change with a lowered car at the dealer? I got my car at huntington and they threw in the first 3 services. Only thing is that my car has a lot of mods now... Still contemplating on going. I usually wrench on my own car bc I’m very particular but.. free oil change is tempting. The other thing is that I usually put my car in valet mode with the cobb AP bc I know the service guys will want to rip the car once they hear how loud it is, since that’s what most gear heads would do. Would they automatically TD1 it from that alone, or is that only done if they hook it up for diagnotics. (Which I think they might do regardless). Still a little confused about this.

If you have a cobb AP flash you'll trigger a TD1 if they plug into your ECU for diagnostics. Just for an oil change though, i would advise against a dealer visit.

Oil changes aren't expensive especially if you buy your oil from Wal-Mart and you get an oil filter and drain plug from ECS or another online source.

In my opinion peace of mind for me weighs more than losing out on about $180 in oil changes. If you take your car to the dealer and god forbid they damage something, abuse it, etc. you'll regret it more than thinking of a few free oil changes.
