    Goodbye TDI, Good Riddance VW, Hello Toyota Yaris SE

    I detected no sour grapes. In fact my experiences with a 2010 JSW TDI mirror much of what was said by the OP. Intercooler issues along with MAF and O2 sensor repairs were the main problems. After awhile, I too, questioned the reliability of the vehicle. In addition, every time I had VW check...

    Battery died

    Have you checked the water level in your battery recently? I checked my battery a few months ago and had to add damn near 1 quart of distilled water to get all of the chambers to the proper level. Of course, you have to take the stickers off the battery to check the fluid levels.

    What would you replace your TDI with????

    Plan to get rid of my 2010 JSW TDI within the next week or two if I can get a fair trade for a 2013 Toyota Tacoma. I need a vehicle that is reliable, easy to maintain, and will last and the VW doesn't meet any of those criteria.

    You guys are making me nervous...

    I am most likely selling my 2010 JSW TDI because I am tired of getting dinged for $500 or so every time the vehicle needs attention, which is quite frequently. Oxygen sensors, injectors, intercooler, etc. You will find the repair costs quickly eclipse any fuel savings you might accrue from the...

    Windshield washer reservoir leak

    I have what appears to be a windshield washer reservoir leak on my 2010 JSW. It must be fairly slow since I don't see obvious fluid puddles under the car. Can anyone shed some light on the likely location of the leak and what one needs to do to address this problem? Thanks in advance.

    So Im thousands of miles away from home in my new TDI when...

When the light came on, I just pulled over and re-tightened the cap and the light went off immediately. Now that your wife has fixed the problem, I would not bother...

    Injector faults, cleaning, and replacement

    I've had the same scenario happen to me a few months ago. VCDS indicated a fault with #3 injector. In my frustration with this damn car, I started using Opti-Lube additive with every fill-up and the CEL went out and has not come back on since. I doubt there is any relationship between these two...

    My guess is you can't read the vehicle information in my signature line. You gotta love a forum where disparate views and opinions are not tolerated.

    New JSW manual TDI

    Just trying my best to pass along some advice based upon my experiences and many others on this forum. It's best to have a realistic outlook and be prepared as an owner of this vehicle. This shouldn't necessarily diminish the excitement of purchasing a new car.
