1000 miles, 2 issues:

- rear washer drips

- electrical/audio problem occurs sporadically after a cold start, particularly when the car hasn't been driven for a couple of days and/or it's been a cold night. audio volume seems to be all over the place, like the speed adjust and/or max startup volume features are going haywire. Using the touchscreen controls results in a static crackle sound. After driving car for 5 minutes or so a restart seems to fix the issue.

I suspect there's some sort of battery drain/low voltage issue that's made worse by cold temps.

Will be calling the service department soon...

I wonder if the dealers notice this dripping with the vehicles on their lot. Has anyone tried to get this issue serviced yet?

x2. I'm curious as to VW's reaction to this, and there level of interest in resolving the problem.

When I floor it on 1st gear, the wheels slip a little, and it feels bumpy. But one time it felt as if i ran over a few very hard bumps on the passenger side.

Could it be that my tires are slipping in a weird way or something?

Has this happened to anybody yet?

had ours for 3 days and noticed the rear washer nozzle leaks (have not used it yet) - hopefully will end up being a recall fix for all the OCD GTI owners out there....

That's typically just your traction control kicking in. It applies the brakes in rapid pulses on both sides until your wheels are synced up, which makes the things really 'bumpy' for a little.

Yeah i dumped half of my washer fluid onto my windshield thinking it may just be that the tank is over filled, but that did not change anything at all, it still drips and is getting worse...

And then on the way home last night on a dark back road this guy in a volvo gets up next to me and gives me a thumbs up... as i proceed to thank him, BOOOOM!!!

Ran right over a MASSIVE truck tire, cracked the front bumper, destroyed the grilles, foglights, ripped out the underbody panels... f*ckin sucked guys... 5 days old!

Have to call the insurance today, thank God i transfered it from my old GTI to the new one. Got the police report and my g/f had her digital camera so we have all the evidence we need. Pics to come soon!

I can't believe that Volvo guy laid such an elaborate trap. He must have been following you for weeks to figure out you'd be at that spot at that time... Never trust Volvos!!

Had my GTI DSG since May. Now have 6,000 miles on the clock. Had all the electronics up the shoot at around 2,000 miles which was intermittent. That just dissappeared else no problems at all. Just scared of driving with the 18inch Monza alloys as the roads in UK can get very narrow and easy to scuff if your now carefull.
Have odd noises sometimes especially from the rear but they seem to go after a few minutes from cold.

regards
Brian
