Would you mind saying to which dealer you had it towed? Southern States? Leith? Had the same issue yesterday but the car choked through a rough start and I made it to work. Emailed my dealer and he said they haven't had to act on this before. He was diplomatic and polite but not particularly helpful. The Polar Vortex seems to have exposed VW's design flaw with gusto this week.Looks like I may have a case of intercooler icing here in NC (Golf ~ 19000 mi)Temps here Monday night into Wednesday morning were below freezing. Car was kept outside during this time and driven about 80 miles. Got off of work on Wednesday and tried to start the car. I only tried 4 times and the last time it almost started but seemed rough and cut off. I called the dealer that I purchased it from and they are going to look at it today.
Side note everyone wanted to know if I needed a jump, thinking that it was my battery, but I politely declined. I am the only one with a TDI at my job. Also, it took VW Roadside 2 hrs. to line up a tow truck and then another hour for the driver to get to me. At least I was able to get a ride out to get a loaner from the dealer and wait in it until the tow truck arrived. Finally dropped my car off at the dealership at 8pm.
I will update when I hear back from the dealer today.
