It can be changed using VCD's cable, You would need some help if you haven't done it before.

The default setting I feel is just right. Just needs some getting used to. Make sure to press the accelerator enough to let the car know that you are indeed moving forward.

Infact yes even i found the default one to be the most usable one, "Early" is another setting but it kicks in very very soon, And the other setting being "late" isn't very usable too.

Don't worry its normal, As said by akshay123, Its the DPF regeneration, RPM's are higher than the usual (Around 1k) Internationally the cluster's are enabled with a DPF indicator which shows that its in action, Its omitted here in India so there is no indication about it.

You don't have a lemon don't worry, Just see what the Service centre says and get your car back.

Finally got the car back.
Looks like the cruise control module is bust. The dealer has ordered for parts from VW will take a week.

Regarding the smoke issue, I guess they are in the dark. Apparently, no errors on the log and they have checked the fuel lines and a general check up of the car. No issues. I hope the issue, what ever it was, is sorted. They have done a close to 40km TD and things seem to be ok. They have assured me that everything is ok. Fingers crossed.

As many have pointed out, the smoke should have been because of DPF regeneration. With lots of city driving, that is totally normal. Nothing to worry about.

Be prepared for it to turn up every 1000 km odd. Do not get freaked out. It's just the regeneration, and there are several threads on VWVortex, and equal number of opinions on whether the smoke should come or not.
Just ensure that you take her for long drives once in a while. Thats all, and have a safe drive.

Will be sure to remember that. Did a 100 km run early this morning. Car as good as ever. Though I was constantly checking the RVM for smoke!!

Does the Jetta have auto wipers? If so, how do I activate it? It was drizzling this morning and I was using the intermittent function. BTW the headlights are good and the cornering lamps are also quite useful on the twisties. Will be doing a chennai trip this weekend. Looking forward to it.

Keep in in the intermittent position, adjust the wipe interval switch for sensitivity. Wipers will turn on automatically and adjust frequency. I use the auto function a lot

Default Volkswagen Jetta : Test Drive & Review

First long trip in the Jetta after a few teething issues.
The car is super on the highways. The suspension is very good and masks speed. The fuel efficiency for the trip was an average 18 kmpl as per the mid with an average speed of 90kmph. ( over a distance of 500km).

I guess the smile is back. Esp. After the smoke issue.

Hope you got the auto wiper function sorted out.
Did the VW service explain at lenght why the white smoke appeared?
And did they bill anything on you?

Someone asked if the pedal is easy to remove. Its actually very easy. I used really two small screw drivers to get this done. Next is to see how i can remove the body completely to clean the contacts, the pump i guess which is inside and the electronic contacts.

But its a easy DIY to install those metal pedals.

Auto wipers sorted. Thanks.

Actually, the VW guys appeared clueless as to the smoke. Just kept repeating that it was a one off and they had checked everything including fuel lines.

No billing.

I can assure you, both the power and efficiency will have you grinning after every long drive - I enjoy my monthly 350 KM's BLR <> CBE trips with 140 BHP / 320 Nm on tap in 5 Hrs and still manage > 20 KMPL

Thats the best part about this engine isn't it? It can keep a smile on your face as well as being a diesel its lighter on the pocket, I have even able to achieve 20+ KMPL on certain trips when i was just cruising at 100-110 kph in 6th gear, But sure its difficult to cruise, Have to downshift every time i see an open stretch.
