    Dieselgate, The Canadian Edition

    I received an email from my dealer today reminding me that my dealer card will expire at the end of January, 2017. They are offering to take the remaining amount that is left on the card and put it into a dealer account for me that does not expire. I can then use this account to pay for anything...

    Clockspring recalls are in the mail

    I had mine done on Thursday while having my door lock replaced. If your air bag light is on you get a new clock spring, otherwise they are putting a cover over the clock spring. Part # is 5K0-953-259 Cup.

    2012 Passat driver door freezes

    I took by 2013 Passat to my dealer yesterday to have all 4 locks checked, as I have had several occasions where none of the doors would unlock in cold temps. The report I got says "Found all 4 door latches are defective. Both fronts had electrical fault, both rears had implausible signal." Funny...

    Anyone received money yet from VW Canada?

    They just want to make sure that you still own the car. You may have sold it, or had it written off in an accident, and they do not want to be giving out $1000 to people that do not warrant it.

    Potential Bad News for Canadian 2016 Passat TDI owners

    The manual transmission is still going to be available in the TSI, so I don't think that the new safety features have anything to do with the removal of the manual. My sales rep said that they sell almost no manual Passats in any model configuration, so they were not concerned with the dropping...

    Glow plug delay?

    My experience has been in -30c weather I have to wait about 6 - 8 seconds for the glow plug light to go out. The car then starts just as quickly as in the summer. I can also say from experience that at that temperature the car will not start until the light goes out.
