Wow, 4-5 months, ouch,
I agree with you there, "question is what"

This is an odd issue, Have you been able to replicate it to VW? Curious how they handled it.
Also did you see a pickup in the issue after your tune?

I posted earlier and have the same issues as all.

Today I drove out of my garage with no problems to the gym 5 minutes away. Parking in the 100+ degree Austin outside parking lot. Came out 45 minutes later after workout and had the no start issue. Almost felt like a dead battery or bad alternator, but this time with an error: "steering column lock error - call dealer" Pushed the start a second time and the car started fine.

That's another issue - don't want to thread-jack, but there is an update to the KESSY steering-column lock (different column lock because of keyless), and if you are getting this error, contact the dealer - they will reflash the steering column module.

There is, however, another issue with this - I created a thread to deal with it:

Nope! It actually hasn't done it at all for at least a week! So it comes and goes.

Nope, did it before the tune and after.

That has got nothing to do with this problem.

So I just experienced the same stalling problem on my 2011 GTI, happened twice in four days, and both times it was the same way. I had driven it for about 5 min. with AC on, then stopped for maybe 5 min. and when i got back into the car i turned it on, turned ac on, and when i put it into reverse it shut off. But there were no warning indicators, then it strarted up fine the second time, but i had to turn ac off. Not sure if it is linked to ac or not. Also it has been same tank of gas, although i put 93 so that should not be the cause. Taking it in today, so lets hope there is an answer and a resolution.

I never had to turn the AC off and it always seems to start fine a second time.

'11 DSG GTI here, I've had this problem on at least 7 different occasions (at 2500 miles now). Dealer couldn't replicate issue, and said there was nothing they could do.

Quick update: Haven't had this problem in 600+ miles (originally happened 3x in the first 1000 miles). I can't say I'm doing anything differently and the car is still stock. Knock on wood?

Hmm I haven't had the issue either. It stopped for me and it was at least doing it once a day. The only thing different I can think of is I am using Chevron gas now instead of Shell just to try.

Bad gas! I was just up to Wisconsin. I stoped at a no name station and put in a quarter tank of 92(?), Thankfully I didn't put in more. It was fine till I went to start it, I had to crank it for five seconds, and when it caught it ran like shit for a while. I quckly went to a brand name station and topped it off with 93. it ran fine after that. Thats the first time I ever saw 92, in Chicago we get 87, 89, and 93. Is it common in other parts of the country?
