    Sport mode continues to impress

    Thanks for the insight. I think I like comfort and power since I live in L.A. where most of the roads are bumpy. I guess that's what I am liking about engaging just sport with the shifter.

    Sport mode continues to impress

    I turned in my leased 6SPM GTI in April and decided it was time to get the DSG so I pulled the trigger on a 2019 GTI SE DSG. After putting a little over 5,000 miles on the car I am really impressed by the suspension, handling and power of the car. Then the other day I discovered something I am...

    Why can't service centers just change the oil properly?

    I am impressed there are 5 pages worth of people who don’t expect good service from a dealership doing an oil change which is not free for most VW’s. In fact the average price for the first service is probably around $85. There is nothing wrong with extractors but most VW dealerships with lifts...

    Why can't service centers just change the oil properly?

    BTW quit saying do the oil change yourself... I already do but 2 services came with the car.

    Why can't service centers just change the oil properly?

    Wow there are a lot of excuses for bad work here! Just to clear things up minimum wage in Los Angeles is $13 an hour and low wages don't always mean bad service, but bad management usually does. A similar business I visit at least once every 2 years I will mention by name is Big Brand Tire and...

    Why can't service centers just change the oil properly?

    This is total denial of what it takes to earn a customers trust. I may never go back there for anything after that experience.

    Why can't service centers just change the oil properly?

    I know they don't make much but they are getting paid by VW since it was listed on the window sticker. Granted I paid way less than sticker but that's not the point. If we all change oil properly why can't a professional how does it for a living?

    Why can't service centers just change the oil properly?

    I have the extractor and have been doing oil changes myself forever but the oil changes came with the car so there I went.

    Why can't service centers just change the oil properly?

    So I went to a local dealer to get my oil changed (my car came with 2 services rolled into the deal) and of course they overfilled by 1/2 quart and overfilled coolant by 12 ounces. Even after I said to the service advisor please make sure nothing is overfilled as I will not accept it. To top it...

    The mystery of the disappearing coolant... again!

    I see something like dried milk right over the midway point outside of the overflow canister. Probably came out the cap at some point.

    The mystery of the disappearing coolant... again!

    Ironically my first 2015 GTI never leaked. i will check it out this weekend. I am guessing the total amount leaked is probably 1/4 cup of coolant which to me sounds very trivial. It’s still above the min line.

    The mystery of the disappearing coolant... again!

    This is truly a tired old subject with the GTI but just curious what the gang would do. Bought the 2019 GTI SE in April and the coolant level observed when cold measured a hair below halfway between max and min. Almost 5 months later it is now just above the min line when measured cold...

    I am considering tracking my car in the near future...looking for suggestions/tweaks

    I would not track the GTI. Too expensive to repair the inevitable breakdowns. Instead get a first gen Miata with a hardtop. Install hawk blue brake pads, a jackson racing intake, roll bar, and shaved RA1's have fun. You will drive more and spend waaaaaay less. They are absolutely bullet prove...

    Props to the GTI new car smell!

    I wrote the post in notes on my phone then pasted it so maybe that’s why it came out so weird.

    Props to the GTI new car smell!

    OK this is a silly thread topic but stay with me here. My wife and I had car leases expire during the pandemic. She wanted a Jeep, and I wanted another GTI but I decided to buy this time because duh sick deals like 0% percent financing and 6 months no payments. But that's not the story. These...
