VW dealers only sell DEF (urea) in 2.5 gal (9.4 liters) bottles. Please check your receipt so we can all have an accurate number.

Thanks.

Picked up 12/27/11
First fuel up (8.19 gallons) 1/11/12.

CEL came on this past Friday (1/13) on the way home. Called dealer, 1st chance to look at it Tue. 1/17 8am. Dropped it off Monday night. This morning (Tue.) at 8:05am get a call from dealer.

Dealer: Mr. Wilson your car is ready!
Me: Already? What cause the CEL?
Dealer: Adblue sensor was sending out a low reading.
Me: Was the adblue low already? It's supposed to last 15k miles & the car only has 300 miles on it!
Dealer: No, the tech said it only took a very small amount, so he reset the CEL.
Me: Is it possible the sensor is bad?
Dealer: We don't know.
Me: You don't know? So you are just going to wait to see if it happens again then check it out?
Dealer: The tech didn't say anything about it.
Me: I will pick it up after work.

If this happens again I will start a new thread if one is not here yet.

I picked my car up from the dealer after hours so I did not talk to anyone.
I had asked them to let me know how much DEF they addded.
Hand writen note said 1 bottle 1.89 liters
Here is the urea part # on the service invoice G-052-910-A2
After 2,000 miles since the service vag com reduction fluid level reads 99.87 % I'm going to check it every 2,000 miles to see how much it does use untill the next service.

1/13 - CEL (check engine light) - Mileage in 313, Out 317.

1/17 - from dealer invoice - "Cause: Gff, Diag, Ran test plans, found codes to be sporadic, found adblue low, topped off fluid, cleared codes retested.

"317 cell light on, sporadic codes P1570, P203B wvw verified cel light, ran 6150 full diagnostic scan, found sporadic codes P1570, P203B. Ran test plan, checked level of adblue, top off, test plan found that the sporadic codes were not occuring at time of diagnostic scan. Cleared codes and roadtested. Returned to find codes did not return."

I have no idea what the codes were but if someone does I would appreciate that knowledge for future reference. I also have a copy of the Diagnosis Log but don't know if that would help. I also spoke with the tech about how much adblue he thought it took to top off. He said he looked in the filler tube & didn't see anything. He stated after just a few seconds the fill tube was full so he is guessing about a pint or so.

500 miles, the only problem was one time after park and turn off the engine and pull out the key, there is big noise under the hood, like fan spinning fast, or like engine still on, not sure what happens.....restart it and turn off again, the noises are gone.

I don't know if it is total coincidence, but I used to have interrupted regens frequently with my 2011 Golf, don't think I have had one with the Passat(Approx 9000 miles now).....same driving pattern/route.

Default 18976mi and chime malfunction

At the subject mileage, I've experienced the dashboard chime malfunctioning when I get alerts such as "Ice Conditions" or "low fuel"...gonna have it checked out during my 20k mi service.

Hey, no 39 degree chime, might be better without it, such a useless darn thing.
