All of sudden while driving my check engine icon lit up. Had a dealership run the code and was a bad O2 sensor. Haven't replaced it yet since I am not too concerned due to it being only an emissions issue however I have noticed about a 30% decrease in my fuel economy since the O2 sensor failed. I was quoted that the repair will run me around $200 - $250 including labor.

engine light came on and ended up being a coolant issue and was the themostate.
Temp Sensor failed, which made the engine light to go off. VW quoted me at around $600. Got it repaired at a private auto shop for less than $200 (if I remember correctly).
