Default Bad compass

I picked up a used 2015 with 34,xxx miles on it. The compass doesn’t seem to work. It does change direction, but has no accuracy. I think I’ll take it in for and oil change and mention it.

Is calibration discussed in the manual?

I just had my rear left caliper seize on my 2015 with 60000km...luckily, I bought cpo extended warranty so I'm covered.

My infotainment unit also freezes randomly and spots working completely... That's going to get replaced under warranty aswell but only when it stops working completely as the dealers won't replace it if it's only an intermittent issue

He was rummaging through the car looking for loose change, so there's a lesson in there somewhere.
does anybody know the p/n of this trim piece, i almost cut my hand with it today

this is going to sound ridiculous i think, but my pedals (clutch and accelerator) make a lot of noise and are not smooth.

any way to "lube" these up?

Ran out of washer fluid and never got a warning light for low-level; thinking the sensor might be bad. Putting it on the list of things I want the dealer to look at when I take it in for phase 2:
-Wind noise from passenger door/window during the colder months
-Window buttons on drivers door 'click' loudly, seem loose
-Drivers door handles are difficult to pull/open sometimes (both interior and exterior)

Luckily I have another 16 months of CPO warranty.

No washer fluid level sensor in a 2015 S.

Ask me how I know.

First week of post phase 2B I came to notice a peculiar variation in the correspondence between the accelerator pedal and the RPMs... finally the OBD threw a check engine light.

The dealer service determined a faulty fuel sensor on the common rail... the whole rail is the unit of replacement, so it got replaced. Now runs great.

From the service report:

1 04L-130-321 PIPE
1 03L-130-301-AR PIPE
1 03L-130-301-AS PIPE
1 03L-130-301-AT PIPE
1 03L-130-301-BA PIPE
1 04L-130-089-G FUEL DISTR

customer customer consort check vehicle for fault was had is p0087
- performed test plan to check rear fuel pup pressure was ok 4.5bar
pressure check hit fuel pressure pump was ok and check fuel rain sensor
was i read to low pressure for high pressure pump. removed fuel rain
and replaced fuel rain and replaced injector lines and lined for fuel
supply and cleaned fault and checked fuel rain pressure was ok working


I hope this is useful or informative for anyone experiencing similar.

Learned this week that there are faulty fobs!

On ours the key fob battery had gone low twice in the 1 1/2 months we've had this car. Last week, the battery fully died on a longer drive before we could replace it. I wasn't initially worried since I knew I should be able to start the car with the emergency procedure. This worked fine but the car didn't move once it was started and a "Transmission Error" came on. Had to get the car towed to the nearest dealer. Next morning brought in our other fob and the car started and drove perfectly. Dealer hasn't heard of this before but checked our keys and said the one that died is part of a faulty series and has ordered us a new one.

Keeping a spare key battery in the car now anyways though!

Anyone else have this happen to them?

my dealership replaced my DSG shifter surround under warranty no questions asked once I showed them the razor blade that appeared.

I opened/closed my cubby once or twice since I have had the car, and its been open the whole time.

My Engine Start/Stop button was taking multiple pushes to do its thing. Reported it to dealer during phase 1 emissions recall and they replaced it under warranty. Anyone else have this issue? Dealer said they haven't heard of it but I found that fishy when it replaced it with no hassle.

There have been numerous reports of the button acting up here on the site, IIRC.
