    I have a manual GTI
    check engine light came on
    brought to dealer
    who said I needed a 1200 throttle body replacement
    I complained due to low miles and just out of warranty and now they're doing it free of charge
    on the way to to the dealership tonight car wouldn't get into gear and the gear indicator was going haywire, telling me I was in 5th when I was in 2nd. thought I would have to get towed but turning the car off and on fixed the problem (for now.) Will see if they repair properly
