      If it sounds like sarcasm, it probably is.

      Whoa, I thought I drove a lot
      2009 rabbit 5 speed, 115xxx kms (I think thats 72 000 miles?), purchased brand new in march 09.
      Absolutely no mechanical issues at all
      BUT
      I notice sometimes when its really really hot or really really cold and i unlock the doors, its like they keep unlocking themselves non stop like the wires a short circuiting or something. When I step out of the car and lock it stops. This has been since new. Not a big deal at all and I kinda find it cool (quirk of the car as far as I see it!)

      I'd show that to the dealer. Eventually your actuators (or whatever is in there) will prematurely wearout and fail.

      '07 with 49,5xx. CAI and Uni Stg1 for about 17K, switched to a UM tune 100 miles ago. No issues and I can only hope it stays that way for a very long time. 250K (only about 20K from me!) on my old A4, have a personal record to beat

      It's better than stock, but it leaves a bit to be desired. They're WAY behind UM (and presumably C2), especially on a 2007 and older.

      I got one of the first MkV's. It's a 2005.5 150HP model with (only) 68k miles. Water pump failed about 48k miles and was replaced under power train warranty by VW.

      Besides that, it's been a very reliable car.

      Now I'm considering a new 2.5L Golf.

      2008 Rabbit bought new about to hit the big 100K and not one problem. All I have ever done is change the oil...

No questions asked, no hassle, etc. I just called and talked to them, drove it over to show them, and they set an appt for me after they received the part. Worth a shot...
      Any more info on this??

      I am in the same boat with this TN heat... would love a nice new black one!

      Mine did the same thing... and unfortunately, I did not find it cool. I think there is a TSB for it? Either way, take it to the dealer and get it to 'perform' for you on the spot and they will replace the wiring harness. Luckily I was still under warranty and this was in my driver side door btw...

      Well, im out of warranty anyways. (Drove way too much!)
      I couldnt get it to "perform" either. it usually doesnt happen. Sometimes it goes away. I think it happened last 3 weeks ago and prior to that it could have been last summer. It should be noted, however, that it did this A LOT when I first got the car and then just sort of "levelled off."

      05.5 - 107k miles original motor/chain.

      Replaced Tranny, water pump, and Valve cover. I still have the original serpentine belts on the motor and I am just starting to get noise. Chains are still quiet as far as I can hear.
