Same damn thing as everyone else. Dealership charges arm and a leg to fix anything and when u get it of the shop it seems they created more problems than fixes. These cars are piles of junk. Hope vw goes under and stops making vehicles.
Yes within the last week the ABS light went on and the vw dealership charged me $89 to tell me my harness was broken but someone else told me it's my moduler. I'm at my wits end with this car and the dealership services
