I keep seeing all the issues you guys are having with these cars and I keep thinking it's going to happen to mine too and now I'm a nervous wreck! Thank God for the warranty!
My car only has the N80 valve go. Car runs great! Still waiting on the valve to come in. I have the base model 4motion car. No bells and whistles. My car was made in December of 21. When was yours made? I’m not expecting anything else to go wrong. I feel positive about my car! 😀

I’m happy with mine too. A few buggy ‘start car again manually’ messages when I first got - related to stop/start I think which I’ve since disabled with the bypass adapter. Fun to drive and love the huge moonroof and amount of interior space.

It took a 1300 mile round trip to Kearney NE and back to Bristol (Kenosha County) WI to restore my confidence in my car. It performed beautifully on the Interstate. There were no dummy lights and it only consumed about 8 ounces of oil (assuming the dipstick range indicates a quart of oil). The car has plenty of power for passing trucks and climbing hills. I only had to reboot the CarPlay once by simply turning the radio off then on again. Overall it was an incident free trip.

I have had zero issues with Android auto. Just had the 10k service done and still running great. A trip to Cleveland Ohio is in the plans for next week.

The more I read these pages the more I started to feel the same way but.... VW really is a great brand that's had great success with their vehicles and a long track record. We may not have known what we were getting into buying a first year model but we're dealing with a solid company and they'll work the bugs out SOME are experiencing

As for me... SE AWD w/IQ Drive and I love it. Ya the Trans takes getting use to but it's good looking, comfortable, gets dam near 40 mpg and ive had no issues... 3,000 so far and loving every minute.

My previous Tig had 50k trouble-free miles. The 2015 GTI is still going strong after 24k(!).
My old Corrado was a constant stream of annoying fixes after... well pretty much after I bought it at 60k, lol. All the way to 140k when I sold it. At least it was close to 140k as the odometer broke and I had to rebuild it on the kitchen table! 90's VW's were not exactly known for reliability.
Modern VW's are fairly good in the major things. I still expect some minor annoyances but I'm not sure that's not unique to VW.
At least I usually know how to fix them. VCDS and metric tools (and a warranty!) are lifesavers.

When you are there check out the USS Cod the only fully intact WWII sub left, they have not cut any holes or altered it in any way, it's remains ready for combat!

The cod was in dry dock the last time we went up there. I have been on the USS Drum and the USS Ling both subs of that era. The Drum sits on dry land now and the Ling has been reclaimed by the Navy for possible reassignment to another Museum group. It still sits in the Hackensack river in Hackensack NJ waiting for its future. The Clagmore which is the last of the Guppy 3 conversions is sinking and will most likely be a reef in a year. She is suffering from the same leak that sunk the Ling a few years back. Luckily the Ling was sitting in the mud.
