So here's my concern/beef/irritating occurrence. The dealership was so confident that I could tow with my new SW that they GAVE me an installed trailer hitch and a 5 year/100K warranty. Less than one week after buying, I find out that I CANNOT tow because mine has the 6 speed automatic. :-| I bought the vehicle to pull a small Aliner camper trailer.

Now that I've stopped crying intermittently, can some one tell me if they have had problem-free towing of 1800 lb. loads? If not, I'll put away my kleenex and buy a tent, but as an old widow lady with a big dog, I'm not so sure that's a good idea. Any input?

Okay, sorry about using the emoticons. I won't do it again...

Serious, you cannot tow with a DSG on a TDI Golf either? What about a hitch-mounted bike rack?

Is there such a thing as a decent service manual for the 2010 model year? I'm beginning to get killed on repair bills...all related to the EGR and other emission stuff. I've got to find a way to start doing some of this work myself. I'm so darn frustrated at this point you can't imagine. Whatever I've saved in mileage, I've wasted with the repair bills related to emission equipment. Most recent failure is this exhaust valve not operating which they want to replace.

I had one failed at 60 or 65k km on my 2011 JSW and they've replaced it under warranty. I would recommend www.myturbodiesel.com website in addition to TDI club forum - these two have most of the service procedures required and it saves me a lot of time and $$$

soINtdi,
I've got to replace the vents on my center console also. Did you find it easy or hard to do? Any tips are appreciated.

I too have a few louvers in the center console vents that I need to attempt to pop back into place. Any advice or words of wisdom would be much appreciated. If I can't repair, I'll need to replace the vent. Kids these days...
