Driving 2011 TDI Sportwagen (automatic) and waiting to get a 2014 6-speed TDI Sporwagen (Silver/Black)

I'm hearing of clutch problems with TDI's that have remained in storage and being released for sale as dealers find active buyers. Does the forum have any feedback on this?

I am thinking of taking it for a longer test drive to check it out myself (short drive ~10-min did not reveal any issues). I have read posts where folks have complained about clutch pedal not returning to home position after a gear shift or clutch slips etc. Any info/guidance would help.

Hey I’m new here. Just got my first VW which is an‘89 Jetta coupe in February ‘20. It’s a 1.6 T manual, and I’m really loving it.
It needs a little TLC, but I’m doing work to it here and there!

Hello from Perth, Scotland

Just found the forum. I currently have a 1999 MK4 Golf SDI that I run on veg oil that I just finished a video on. I'm hoping to post regular updates about running an old VW on non conventional fuels.

How'd you find the forum?: Picked up a Salvage titled 99 Cabrio with less than 100,000 miles on it. A few cheap fixes later and it runs very well and no check engine lights. Now to just bang out the dent that caused it to be totalled by the insurance company enough that my wife will be seen in it. I found this forum while looking for seat compatibility for the passenger front. I have fiddled with Mercedes, Chevys, and even a little Geo Tracker I put a couple hundred thousand miles on since my 30s. Lately I find myself mostly working on my tractor and its multitude of attachments.

Fix mit einem hammer! (a phrase coined by a girl friend as I worked on her 80s Merc 300D front brakes with a 5lb deadblow.)

Hello guys

I am a new member. My location is Stockholm Sweden.

I am an electro engineer. Working with IT. I have an interest of most technical stuff. Love RC helicopters, fishing, home automation. Well... fixing with almost everything, which actually take more time than I have.

I just took over a VW Polo V 1.6 TDI 2011, CAYB 6R134 from my father to use as my second car 5 month ago as he is to old to drive. Unfortunately I have had some problems with it.

I joined this forum both to get help from you pro:s, but also to help others if I can of course.


Regards
Peo
