Suspect the engine coolant is leaking. purchased Taos 2022 high line on 31dec2021(Canada) and I had this 'Engine coolant level low warning light is on dashboard. VW service tech filled up the coolant on July2022. But again on 7sep2022, coolant level low light showed up. next day, drove into service centre and found coolant level is low. Filled up the coolant and I am going to drop off the car at VW service tomorrow for diagnosis. Suspect the engine coolant leakage issue.

Does anyone have this issue? Please share.
14000 KM into my Taos, i am not a happy customer. I got one recall and visited service centre three times. started to worry about reliability.

regards,
Nas

getting a coolant low light and filling and then repeating is very concerning for sure. Ours doesn't have that issue and I"ve not heard others on here say that. Its probably a 1 off issue because humans make mistakes. We did get our fuel evap valve replaced this week as that was getting stuck (lots of people seems to have that one), there's no impact to driving the car with the stuck evap value.

all the recalls ours has had have all been software related, I wouldn't put that into the category of being worried about reliability.

all products have 1 off issues, Ford had a new engine that was dying with less than 10k miles this year. bad batch of valves. once you get the low coolant fixed, it should be fine

ok thanks for your reply. service center has requested for overnight diagnosis for my issue as they can't figure out the reason on my last appointment. I am gonna drop off the car next week and lets see how it goes.

I’m having the same issue. I bought mine in April and this is the second time I have had warning lights. The first time the dealership said it was because the coolant had not gone thru the engine and they filled it saying nothing was wrong with it. Today the warning light shows up and I have to fill it. I travel for work so I’ll close up 24k. Have you figured out what is wrong yet?

Don't drive it at all.
Tow to dealer.
Or... Leave rad cap off C if u can let it idle . Fill to top, watch to c fluid go down, fill to MARK. Put cap on.
Fill. Check overflow tank is at middle.
Now let it sit , running, watch guage.
If it overheats, head gaskets.
