Still not completely fixed. Bought a MAF sensor from EBAY and still had the same problem. My uncle and cousin work for a VW dealer in GA. They told me VW was very particular about their parts so I really needed to get the part from the dealer. I'm awaiting the new sensor now. I'll let you know how it goes....
yes, i think that my car has everything listed here and then some. I also have something wrong with my odometer. it is fine until i get up to about 60mph then i have no clue how fast im going. i didnt know this at the time i bought the car cuz i only drove it in town. but the first time i took it out of town over by seattle it said i was doing 60mph but the police officer did not agree and wrote me a ticket for doing 75mph. that was a wonderful day. with all the other repairs i have been making on this thing i havent been able to get this fixed due to the money situation and i have all together got 3 speeding tickets in two years with this car. I am 44yrs old and i have my class b cdl with passenger endorsement and have not had a ticket in 20years til this car. its done wonders with my insurance rate... thank you volkswagon.
My car was diagnosed with a pvc pipe and now needed a MAF sensor. itll be 262 bucks after just paying 478 dollars to fix other check engine problems!!! It still isn't fixed and I don't know if I should report a lemon law. especially since I bought an extended warrenty and everything wrong with it is NOT covered under the warrenty
