Yes, there have been reports of people getting it fixed out of warranty. Check the thread here:Do you guys think I would have any luck asking them to check out the metal trim around the shifter. I’m well out of warranty, but I’ve been cut by it twice, so that means it’s a safety issue... guessing that would get there attention quick.
Hi lordvader, I'm in Sydney with a 2015 Golf Wagon so out of warranty. Been getting the "Leave vehicle only when selector lever is in position P" intermittently since just before Christmas. Got a definitive diagnosis today from my VW specialist (not the VW dealer). Also found today that I can remove the key without being in park--not every time but often enough. The fix requires replacing the selector mechanism--just because of a faulty micro-switch. Crazy! Waiting for a quote.I've been getting this issue on my 2017 Golf Wagon.
However, I'm in Australia, and there doesn't seem to be a recall here for the issue ...
Any Australians experience this issue?
