    Cold draft

    I was driving home last night and when I went to flip my car into sport I felt a cool draft of air. By this point the heat had been on for 15 mins and the car was warm but I felt this cool draft down by the shifter. Has anyone else ever noticed this? Any ideas on what could be causing it?

    $470 for service?

    I called my dealership last night so I could book my '10 Golf 2.5 in for it's 60,000Km service. I asked the tech how much will it cost as I've heard the 60,000Km service is one of the more expensive ones. He told me it'll be $470 plus tax, which works out to about $531 after taxes. Does anyone...

    Has anyone tried Goof-Off?

    I got some yellow paint on my inner wheel well, driver side door and back rim. Some people have told me Goof-Off works for removing paint off cars but on their site it says it could damage many automotive paints and plastics, and says nothing about being safe for rims. Has anyone used this...

    What's the oddest question a dealership has asked you?

    I just booked my Golf in for it's 45,000km service. I said to the guy "I'm literally at 45,000Km so I want to bring the car in Saturday for the service." He says no problem, we can do the 45,000Km service on Saturday, so how many Km's are on your Golf?" I laughed and he asked me again...

    Front windows

    Have you guys noticed that when you let either your driver or passenger side windows go down automatically they don't go down all the way...they stop with less then 3/4 of an inch to go. If you hit the button again they finish lowering. Any idea on why VW programmed the windows like that? I was...

    Thumping sound from window

    My back driver side window has been making a thump when it lowers. Over the past week it's gotten a little bit more noticeable. Does anyone have an idea on what might be going on and if there's a way I can fix it myself...I really don't want to spend more money at the dealership.

I'm guessing someone backed into...

    Locks and Clocks

    I just got my 2010 Golf about a month ago and I had a few questions that the dealership failed to answer. First off, I have been told by a few different people that the clocks in the Golf can only be displayed in 24 hour time!? It's not a big deal for me but it just seems odd that they wouldn't...
