    1. Free MK7 GTI axle-back exhaust Charlotte area

      For Charlotte-area users, I’ve got an axle-back stock exhaust off a 2017 GTI. Exhaust is pristine and has less than 5k miles on it. It’s free for whoever’s willing to come pick it up. It’ll be out by...

      It creaked and popped and soon progressed into a persistent rattling sound that was audible regardless of how smooth or bumpy the road was. The dealer replaced the front driver side strut mount,...

      Replacing my differential lock seems to have resolved my symptoms. Now there seems to be something wrong with the front suspension, but that's another story.

      The differential lock is another term...

      That's what they thought about my car, too, and my symptoms were very similar. Well, one new transmission later, the problem isn't fixed and now a new differential lock is on order. I'll keep you...
    6. Good point. Done.

      Good point. Done.

      I'm going for another MT. If I were to request a DSG, I'm sure I'd have to come out of pocket for the difference. But more than that, I just don't think I'd find it as fun to drive. I think I'd...

      Got a call today from VW Customer Resolution and Retention. They're replacing my GTI with a brand new Golf R!! OK, maybe that last part's not true, but they are replacing the car, which is great....

      Update:

      I called VWofA on Monday morning and said that I'd like the car replaced. It had already been 17 days, and there was no end in sight. The rep said that he'd start the evaluation process...

      Hmm.. That's similar to what my car was doing before I took it in, except mine was a bit more pronounced and it was happening while traveling in a straight-ish line with the clutch engaged.
    11. That's the outcome I'm hoping for, friend. Here's...

      That's the outcome I'm hoping for, friend. Here's hoping.

      Sorry to hear about your Mustang, but I'm glad it worked out. Sounds like Ford stepped up for you. And I can definitely relate to the...

      I just stumbled upon your thread and was about to say that your symptoms sound awfully similar to mine, except I occasionally had it happen at low RPM in 2nd, too, and it seemed to happen regardless...

      In North Carolina, where I bought the car, it's 20 or more business days during a 12-month period of the warranty. In South Carolina, where it's registered, it's 30 days, business or otherwise.

      Honestly, the ideal resolution for me is for them to put me in another GTI. There's no other car I want. I had an MK6 Golf before this, and it was problem-free for the 65,000 miles I owned it. This...

      Oh, it's been with them the whole time, for 15 days. To the dealer's credit, who's been great throughout, they recognized that the car still wasn't right after installing the new tranny and basically...

      Nope :( Really starting to regret this purchase.

      Update: Well, I just heard from the dealer. They replaced the transmission, seemingly with a brand-new one (FedExed from Germany), and it hasn't solved the problem. The knocking persists. My car,...

      I pressed for extended coverage with the VWoA regional case manager. I didn't ask for that much additional coverage -- I only asked that they start the clock over on the powertrain warranty from the...

      Thanks, all. I feel better knowing that this is standard practice and that there shouldn't be a difference in reliability. :beer:

      Thanks! As for the symptoms with my car, I never heard the rattling while idling. It was only ever audible when the car was moving at very low speeds in 1st or 2nd gear, usually with the clutch...
