  1. MKVI GTI
    Just sharing some news about a VW RECALL that just came out. http://www.autoblog.com/2015/08/14/vw-recalls-420k-vehicles-drivers-airbag-failure/ The website provides info on what is going on. We are supposed to get an airbag light if the problem occurs but we can also check by VIN#.

    Hapy New Year! Lets get down to it. 2010 Gti, 69.9K miles, No mods (except R8 coils and K&N drop in air filter) Just changed the plugs, coils, and oil about 4K ago after I seafoamed the car. And that fixed my misfire code... for a few thousand miles. But it came back with a vengeance, and...
  3. MKIV GTI
    In the past couple months I've slowly noticed more and more of this noise in the top end that's gradually gotten worse. Now it's to a point that is beginning to concern me. I've also noticed a gradual lose of power in the past few weeks. The noise begins after the vehicle has been running for...
  4. MKV GTI
    Owned my 2007 GTI MKV for 4 days today. Came from a 2003 Ford Lightning with a nice bolt on list but gas killed me so I traded. Fun little thing, I have dubbed it The Marshmallow. Pretty peppy, as far as I know, it has Injen cold air and aftermarket muffler. My confusion comes in the form of...
  5. MKIV GTI
    After installing an aftermarket radio into my car it threw a code for a bad O2 sensor. I took my car to a shop to get the code read. The code reader would not connect to the ECU in order to read the code. We thought it was the code reader itself. After trying 7 different code readers that...

    I know this is probably on here somewhere, but I couldn't find the specific thing that is happening to me. I'm just driving my mk3 gti at night and all of a sudden my headlights go completely out. All of my interior lights work, The indicator light on my headlight switch is on with not...
  8. MKII GTI
    A friend of mine picked up a 91 MKII GTI the other day without having me go with him. The car has a couple electrical issues, the turn signals don't work both in the cluster and the exterior. Also his speedometer doesn't work. I am unfamiliar with the GTI's and was wondering if any of you savvy...

  10. VW GTI Problems / Complaints
    Hello everyone, Enjoying my new 2011 GTI w/DSG tremendously. Got it last week and currently driving it somewhat conservatively to break it in. My previous and first car was a 1998 Corolla (auto). So forgive my post if it displays any ignorance about these fine Volkswagens. As I brake / roll...
  11. MKIV GTI
    So my passenger side headlight went out the other day and I replaced the bulb. I have 6k HID's. I have noticed that sometimes when I'm driving, the passenger side headlight would randomly turn off. If I turn my lights on and off several times, the passenger side light MIGHT turn back on...
  12. VW GTI
    Today, I disconnected my battery to reset my computer (CAI messed with the "check engine" light) Ever since I reconnected the battery I've had a couple problems. 1) My windows and sun roof won't open. 2) My car will not lock/unlock with the clicker, but it will arm the alarm. 3) I am not...
