    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    Thanks for the reply. In D or S mode there are no gear numbers. As for the ECU tune, it feels ok but, I'd definitely be open to trying something else. I've been considering APR, UM and IE. However, the closest shop near me is a 4 hour drive each way. so, theres that too heh

    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    Maybe this is in the wrong thread but, it also may fall under the title of a stupid question... i bought a used 2017 GTI and apparent;y it was tuned with Unitronic Stage 1. I don't think the TCU was tuned so, my question is, would it be fine to tune the TCU now and should i go with the...

    2017 GTI issues *RESOLVED*

    Finally got my car back today. Luckily, it was covered under warranty. First time in over a month i could put more than a few bucks worth of gas in it. I'm so happy to have my car back.

    Mk7 Gti Gasoline Leak Problem

    Mine is currently in the shop with this exact issue. had the evap cannister and lines replaced. didn't work. they said it was the rollover valve and they had to replace the fuel tank. luckily, the evap parts were under warranty. i hop the fuel tank is as well.

    2017 GTI issues *RESOLVED*

    Still carless. Waiting for a fuel tank to come from the US. Been sharing my parents Nissan Rogue occasionally.....I miss my GTI. But, i worry that I will not be able to fully enjoy it without feeling anxious about something else going bad :(

    2017 GTI issues *RESOLVED*

    I'm not sure. It was done under warranty so, it was of no cost to me...aside from time without my car.

    2017 GTI issues *RESOLVED*

    The dealership called me this morning with an update. Apparently there was a faulty/broken rollover valve(I think that's what they said). So, they're going to replace the entire fuel tank. Hopefully this it it *fingers crossed*

    2017 GTI issues *RESOLVED*

    well, I finally got my car back today after having the evap canister/lines replaced. It still won't let me put hardly any fuel in(6$) and it has 80km range. Took it back to the dealership. I'm hoping they can fix it. I'm bummed.

    2017 GTI issues *RESOLVED*

    Car is still in the shop. Hopefully I will get it today. It's been there for two weeks waiting for parts. I've been thinking about either trading up for a newer GTI or exploring the idea of getting something else. Current;y, the cars I'd consider based on budget and enjoyment are: 1: Audi A3 2...

    I'm still waiting for this repair. With everything being slowed down by covid, the parts won't be in until mid-late next week. I miss my car. Haven't driven it in a week :(

    2017 GTI issues *RESOLVED*

    I should have clarified, it was flagged when they repaired the thermostat/coolant issue. They finished the work before sending off to VW, i guess. When they get a hold of me about the current issue, I think I'll talk to them about trading in on something else. I'd love to get a newer GTI..no...
