I know of a 2011 Golf TDI at Kingston Subaru for sale. $17,900. It's been there since last June 2015. I was the owner. They can't give it away.
It's a bit of a distance from you but a phone call away.
If you have a 2013 I'm betting you have the cold weather package that includes the coolant heater. Plugged in and a few hours on a timer will help. A grill block is also very helpful. You can make your own or check out IDParts.
I've only filled on the reserve about 6 times. Never had a problem. A coworker of mine fills up his Ranger with gas and uses their diesel also. He's done it for years with no issues. For me it's not worth the drive from Kingston. Only fill on the reserve if I'm in that area.
Traded in my 2011 Golf TDI about 4 months ago on a 2015 Subaru Crosstrek. The Sub dealer gave me $16000 Canadian for the TDI. It's still sitting on their lot as of yesterday. Might be their awhile. :eek:
My 2011 Golf TDI and my 2015 Subaru Crosstrek both had the door panels removed when the shop tinted the windows. Took the guy about 30 seconds to remove the door panels. A couple of screws and using a tool popped the push pins out. Haven't had a rattle from any panel. Its all in the tint guys...
6 years or 60K is what they say. Not sure what the severe duty interval is. Shorter of coarse. In your dusty situation I'd shorten it to the severe interval whatever that is. Many here say not to open the air box to inspect the filter because you don't get a good re-seal. Not really in agreement...
