been having to add oil, don't notice much of a functional change since the light came on. I had 2 mechanics say yes, 1 said no, and 1 said maybe that will fix all the codes.
Normally, the car runs perfectly with the engine, but before hand, when we got the car a couple of months ago, it came with a bad master brake cylinder and that needed to be replaced, after it was, the shifting was very late at times and we had to use the paddle gears. My question is, could the late shifting and engine running hard be connected? Or are they both separate problems? And how could you fix them?
Codes 01314...00446 come up. Car hesitates at low RPMs. I will replace the PVC. low voltage may suggest generator but all lights works. It has a new battery. Initially when starting it clicks but starts after I pump the gas pedal.
the steering wheel is a little bit hard and the power steering signal lamp is orange what to do?
1st issue at 40,000 miles needed to have the "Water Pump Replaced (was originally going to be charged from Dealership over $800 but after I mentioned calling VW Corporate - the price dropped dramatically from $800 to $110.

Please help - is this a major issue with vw that I will have to deal with for the life of this car? Should I sell now- or is this poor workmanship from Dealerships?
What causes this problem?
When I push the lock on my remote to activate the alarm, the lights do not flash and/or horn does not sound. But when the door is opened, the alarm begins to sound. I've changed the battery in the remote.

Any help on what this may be would be greatly appreciated.

Any help. I just want to know how much everything will coast

Cycling the window up and down does not wipe off the film. Wiping with the fingers only smudges the film. The film has a chalky feel. Leaky motor inside the door/
