Thermostat went out (indicated by the "air coolant overheating" light going on) also, the air cooling fan never turned off even after I turned off the engine - had to remove the timing belt and the front end of the engine, replace the thermostat (so the VW dealership said) and it cost me $1,800!!! Didn't know where else to go, had to get done.
insufficient coolant light came on after last oil change and now have this agressive leak
Some problem
I've replaced the Thermostat and the Coolant houseing in the same year (2013) and still having coolant problems.
