    Electrical Gremlin

    The Sportwagen wouldn't crank over today. It has been running issue free since we got it 3 years ago. When I pushed the start button, I got all of the warnings that one would expect with a low voltage issue. I checked it and it was at 8 volts, so I put a charger on it for a couple of hours and...

    Driver's Door Window Issue

    The driver's door window on our 2015 Golf Hatchback will not roll down all of the way automatically even after doing the reset procedure of rolling it down and holding the button down for 5-10 seconds after it hits the bottom. All of the other windows work correctly. Suggestions?

    Underseat Drawer

    Does anyone know how to remove the drawer under the driver's seat. There's something behind the drawer in our new Golf that is preventing it from going all of the way in and latching. I can see some papers behind the drawer but can't get to it.
