i got my GTI on monday i drove it home from the dealership its like 15 miles away than of course i was out cruzing around loving it!!! and all of a sudden i hear beeping coming from behind me and a lady screaming you car is smoking....... long story short my brand new united gray two door GTI is in the shop for defective calibers and i only driven it 40 miles :( so right now i am stuck with a loaner car. i hope this is the first and last thing that goes wrong with the car, but after all this i still love it woooooo GTI!!!

man that sucks i feel your pain! it should be ok.. doesnt seem like a common problem that I have heard of so it might just be a fluke that can be fixed with a replacement... good luck with that!

WOW ??? Man that is not cool. Whatever you decided to do...

Just make sure that if it was the brakes that they replace the pads, rotors, and whatever caused the problem... and do an inspection on any of the bearings on the affected wheels...

Good luck man.
