Chris - dude, that blows about the wreck! Glad to hear no one was hurt and the car can be fixed. Mine is on the boat and I should have her by the end of this month. Will update then. As long as I've been waiting for this biotch? I'll probably rack up 1,000 miles after the first two days

sounds like a lot of folks are having the rear wiper leakage.

Chris, you have any pics of the damage to the car?

Rear wiper leak here too. For now, it's a very minor announce. For me, I wash the rear window, wait a couple minutes for the little bit that leaks out to come out, then hit the rear wiper to get rid of the fluid. After that, there's no more leak for me until I wash the window again... Seems like it drains whatever is left in the chamber after you use the washer.


edit: poop. the rear nozzle got leaky without me using it today... guess we'll need vw to get a fix on this. i'll email my dealer today.

Well fellas, I picked my baby up last night, and put a good 115 miles on it already.

Two things I've noticed:
  • As mentioned earlier, I can definitely hear a mild grinding noise when coming out of first, at low RPMs
  • The driver's side door sounds as though it's slightly open (i.e. sounds as if there is air coming in)

Other than that, this vehicle is everything I dreamed it would be.

I have the manual and it makes the grinding noise. The car drives amazing and I have no problem shifting but I still get that noise out of first. When driving fast I can hear some air from the drivers door like it is missing some weather stripping or something. I don't know if I should call the dealer.

Not an issue exclusive to a specific car, but I do have a small squeak in the passenger door when I go over bumps. I'm assuming I can get someone to make it go away with a little silicon.

Yep, same thing here. I have a manual, and I only hear the noise in 1st gear. The sound coming from the door is a little distressing, as it really sounds as though the door isn't closed, even though it is. Like you said, I really hear most when doing 45mph or higher.

Wow.. GTI definitely has some initial quality issues!

I would be very annoyed by the rear washer leakage, but VW should be able to address that easily, esp. the problem appears to be wide-spread.

Now all other intermittent noises to me are the issues that VW can explain away and leave the owners with love-hate relationships with their GTI... I am in the market for a new GTI and am doing research before buying it... Well, I am glad I am doing my research! I am a bit discouraged at this time and will wait a bit before getting the car, if I am to buy a GTI...

I have owned a Passat and had a great experience with the car but disliked the experience with the VW service... I am hoping GTI would be a more reliable car so that I don't have to see VW service department more than just for the regular routine maintenance...

Thanks guys for all your input! It's very valuable to potential buyers, and I am sure VW will have to pay attention to the owners if we all put pressure for better cars from them! Definitely don't let VW get away with explaining issues away! We should expect more from them so that they will keep on improving their quality.

How loud is this grinding noise? I've got a 2010 GTI with MT, nearly 700 miles on it. I listened carefully last night and again this AM and cannot hear any grinding noise in 1st or any other gear with windows closed, radio off. I cannot feel anything abnormal either. Isthis noise specific to a specific build date? (I'm not sure how you tell build date in VW).

I haven't had any rattling/noise from doors, or wind noise from sunroof either.
