I would have to assume that the previous poster knows that it's only supposed to be on when the mirror is slid open.

Perhaps I should have been more clear...the vanity light in my 2015 Golf TDI SE didn't work when the mirror was opened, UNTIL I slid the visor all the way out to the fully "extended" position...at which point it immediately started working properly (and has continued to do so).

Yes, the passenger side turns on when the mirror is open, but the driver side does not.

Issue:
Missing fastener on the passenger side mid section of the underpanel so it was hanging down. Noticed within 500 mi of taking delivery.

Resolution:
Waited 2.5 hours at dealership for them to say they can't get these clips without ordering the entire panel so they're going to just use a nut and washer.

Awesome, brand new car already jerry rigged with its first bandaid. Not the best first impression of a car company.

I don't think that is the first impression VW wants you to have, either. Sounds like your dealership dropped the ball on this one to me - the missing fastener is a factory defect and warranty work should be charged to the factory. The dealership should not have any concern whether they have to order you one fastener or an entire panel to fix it correctly.

I'd ask the dealership again to fix it correctly. If they don't, VW of America customer service would probably get involved.

then they should have replaced the whole panel. I would have sat my ass there and talked to the highest personnel there till they do it correctly.

the nut and washer would have been an acceptable short term fix to keep you on the road, but, only while they are waiting for the panel to come in.

I had gone in during a snowstorm, I was most interested in getting the panel secure before it got marred up hanging down into half a foot of snow everywhere, but I think you guys are correct. I just hate being that guy, but I guess they're going to push me to get it resolved properly by being a squeaky wheel. Maybe I can get them to agree to have whatever parts ready to replace it at my 10000mi service. I don't have much time to sit around while my car gets tinkered with....which is sorta why I bought a new car....

Be that guy. I had an issue with my WRX that had 100k miles on it. An intake hose was improperly reinstalled on my car after service, and I relocated to a new timezone shortly thereafter. Was unable to have the dealer fix it, and they (the dealer) said the only remedy was to let them do the repair (1500 miles away). I contacted Subaru and they offered to cut me a check for the $750 repairs before the dealer was able to return their call. Granted I had photo evidence, but they even threw in a WRC Blue grocery bag.

As for common issues, I have noticed the sticker on the muffler is peeling and hanging off a lot of new TDIs. Better get mine fixed asap

In the past month this has happened 3 times.

At or about the current temperature (0C) the first attempt to start AFTER go cycle the engine continues to crank with no full being injected for about 5 seconds then starts. There's no rough idle or shaking but even if I let go of the key it continues to crank, I'm thinking the starter is on a relay and cranks until it starts.
Annoying and concerning but I dread to think this could be the start of the continuation of the mk6 intercooler issue which was supposed to have been addressed with the water cooled intercooler.
Will monitor for a while and report back.
