    1. It turned out to be a bad sensor. The VW dealership and a local garage that works on imports was able to read a code that said the right rear height sensor was bad. Dealer told me it was a bad computer, and it'd be a $10k job. Took it to the import garage, and they replaced the sensor and problem fixed. They had to re-level the car however, and all in it was a $500 job.

      I ignored this for about 2 months...the car was riding lower than normal, but wasn't completely flat. I elected to get it fixed before winter, as I didn't want to risk the car riding too low when the snow comes. I don't think it'll strand you, but I did experience a lower ride height on the car, and I'm guessing over the long term it would unevenly wear the tires. Hope this helps!
