This BUG never ceases to amaze me. Don't get me wrong but it continues to amaze me as to it's "Come Back To The Dealer Service Department" antics!
I still have the "who cares" light (Check Engine) coming on and then going off routinely. This car only has 42K miles on it and it's an '01!
Then, the drivers side headlight died. Now this was one interesting CF (Charlie Foxtrot for you Vets out there) and after a mere 2 hours of labor over a #$%^ed bulb, it was good again.
After that, at 34K miles, the rear brake pads went out. Let me tell you folks that it would be a wise move to buy the "tool" before venturing into this PITA chore! VW wanted $350 for that op, I did it for about $22.
Now I've got a high temp alert in the car. After a few minutes, it goes away. I checked the level in the over-spillage thing today and it was a tad low.
I'll add some fresh distilled water to it after it cools overnight. If that don't fix it, I'll replace the sensor with a the "green" after-market sensor I've seen.
Do these cars ever stop having "odd things" occur to them???
Regards to all!
