      I asked the same question about vr6 a couple weeks ago.

      I'll bet yours are filthy. It's an extremely gradual degradation.
      My wifes was not that bad. Slightly rough idle when cold, lower MPG by...

      I remember when we got our 99 Passat it must have taken 20K miles for us to get used to the clutch. After that it went another 200K and sold it with original clutch.

      Moving to a 2011 CC 6M was a...

      No, the "Spec" is VW 502 and VW 504 supersedes it. So anything that says VW 502 or VW 504 is fine. Most VW 504 spec oil is 30 weight and most VW 502 spec oil are 40 weight.
      Almost any VW 504 spec...
    6. Rough engine on Cold Start just for a just a few seconds

      I just had plugs and Carbon Crud clean up done. New Pirelli P7 tires too.
      Overall it's running great now at 70K.

      But sometimes on a cold start it idles just a tiny bit rough and clears up in just...

      I get the Castrol Long Life oil from the dealer (usually used on Diesels), it's the only place that sells it.
      It's 10w-30 and gets MUCH better MPG and meets the VW spec.
      It's extremely expensive...

      It sounded like they were not going to do anything unless the Air Bag fault light comes on.

      So when you say VR6 is fine, you mean no "excessive" carbon built up like the 2.0T?

      I'll check out the '16

      The V6 in our 99 Passat (not a VR6) was THE best VW motor I've ever owned by far from...

      Well, what's to be enthusiastic about?

      I've had my share of VW's

      Used Rabbit Diesel (bought with 100K ran for 50k or so 0 issues)
      New Jetta (false oil pressure warnings the whole time we had...

      We have 70K on our '11 Sport and still have original tires. But we run Nokian's in the winter so I'm guessing there is about 40K on them.
      The stock tires still had ok tread but were getting very...

      Hmm, I didn't know that.

      I'm pretty sure GM's don't have the issue I researched it a while back. Maybe GM switches to Port Injection when not under EPA testing ;)

      My current list of potential...

      All European Direct Injection motors have carbon build up. It does not happen on GM Direct Injection motors.
      I don't know why.
    14. Does every VW have Carbon Build up on Gas models and illegal EPA on Diesel

      I still like how VW's handle.

      But Diesel is certainly off the list for the foreseeable future.

      I won't be getting another 2.0TSI with carbon build up that needs to be cleaned out every 30K or...

      I guess I must have seen the combined.

      33mpg for a small car with a 1.8T isn't so great either. I'd expect 36-38mpg.
      For some reason the Passat 1.8T is rated 36mpg highway.

      My 2011 CC was...

      Used car market in USA (in general) is extremely good (for sellers). Depends on the vehicle of course.

      Don't forget in most states if you trade in, you subtract trade value from new vehicle when...

      My wife did say it's running MUCH better and returned to normal MPG (36 MPG on the highway).

      I am worried about how long it will last.

      I won't be keeping it past 100K miles. She puts 20K a year.

      I disagree. I think it's potentially HUGE.

      We are talking BILLLIONs and BILLIONSs in fines, not to mention lost sales.

      Getting service on VW could be an issue 2-3 years from now. Even if it's...

      I know about extended warranty. I already have factory warranty up to 110K. I've already had the codes and intake repair done at 35K or so.
      There were no codes this time and nothing was "broken". It...

      Well, even if it feels better. If it's not thorough, how long will it last?
