      I haven't posted on this thread in a while because I mostly just gave up. Reading through the last 6 months of posts, I think different people have different problems, even though the symptoms are...

      For what it's worth, I recently found myself next to a V6 Accord Coup going up a freeway ramp. Clearly, we both had the same idea in mind; that is, to floor it and get ahead of the other before the...

      I've done some reading about "fuel trims" which my mechanic said can be thrown off by a faulty coolant thermostat. I could see that there might be some interaction between the opening of the manifold...

      Hesitation fixed?

      Another three days and not a single hesitation. I am beginning to allow myself to think that maybe my hesitation is gone. Not to gloat, but it feels so good to pull smoothly through 2.5k rpms.

      I...

      Update

      So here's the latest:

      Many months ago, I replaced my OEM DV rev D with a new one and found it helped with the hesitation even though the old one looked fine. I then tried the Forge DV and found it...

      Is it that easy? Just unplug it? How hard is it to get to the port (clearly, I know nothing about these things)? Thanks.

      Thank you for this post. Interesting that your hesitation was fixed when that wasn't part of the original intent. They just got lucky? Did they ever find any evidence in their logging of the...

      Good question. Is it? It would be good to be able to unplug it when I take the car to the dealer.

      I wonder if someone here might buy one of those APR blue tooth ECU monitoring apps and run some logs? Seems one of the big obstacles to getting to the bottom of all this is an inability to reliably...

      So where does the blue tooth adaptor plug in to? Where is this OBD port?

      Is this something that can easily be installed/uninstalled? can I do it myself?

      If I have the APR BT adaptor and take...

      So is that it? It dies here with, at best, a partial solution for only some people? The Forge DV.

      Has anyone come up with anything new? Anyone managed to resolve the issue other than through a...

      Yes, how did they know what to do? A software fix sounds to me like a very significant development. I would pay good money for that.

      I too am looking forward to the cooler weather. As long as it...

      Yes, VW extended the warranty on the intake manifold. I don't know if this is what that is referring to, but the older IMs were poorly designed and the intake runner and flappers were prone to...

      My letter says "Certain 2008-2011 Model Years VW Vehicles with 2.0TFSI Engine"

      I have heard from my non-dealer mechanic that the evap purge valve can be an issue on these cars. I guess the question is whether that is covered under the 60k power train warranty?

      I have 40k on a set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S and they have held up fairly well with plenty of hard driving. I will need tires soon, but no cupping.
