Known Problems

Because of issues with the glow plugs and/or the glow plug wiring harness from the control relay, the Check Engine Light may illuminate. Our technicians tell us there is a service bulletin, not a recall from Volkswagen regarding replacement of the glow plugs on the 2004 model year only.

Brake pads and rotors may wear out prematurely. This can be heavily dependent on driving style. Our technicians recommend regular brake inspections with replacement of pads and rotors as required.

Tire wear can be problematic, very dependent on driving style. Our technicians recommend regular tire inspection and replacement when necessary.
