The one I got is not MIB-II. Ashish (Germandna) said those units cost around 80k. Not sure how accurate that number is.

I only listened to the old HU a few times before switching to this. I think the sound is ok. But my main reason to upgrade was to get the Android auto/ apple carplay functionality.

I'll be checking on some wiring issue with the reverse camera in a few days. I'll try to take a look at model number/make of the Headunit when I get that done and let you know.

You can also ping them directly to enquire.

Hey guys, a query pertaining to the Jetta manual. While we engage the gear, there is always this sound which accompanies it. And I don't refer to the sound in a way of it being a niggle but that sound seems like an intrinsic nature of the gearbox. It gives it a very tactile feel.

The best way to describe is that the feedback which you get makes it feel that the gear shifter is moving through a pan full of oil and this sound accompanies it.

This got me wondering, why does this happen? What is the difference in technology that VW is using in its gearbox as comapred to other companies?

Also, does this happen in other VAG cars as well? Laura, Octavia, Passat, Polo etc.?

Dear Jetta owners,

I bought a 2014 highline TDI DSG last month and went on my first highway outing with family. Upgrading from Skoda Rapid TDI - it is super smooth, NVH is good even at triple digit speeds, sports mode is addictive during take overs.

My wife complained about the rear AC cooling. I owned a 2014 Skoda Rapid TDI before this and as per her rear ac was much better on rapid compared to Jetta :-(

I never experienced myself this as I never sat in rear seat of Rapid in 7 years (guess many owners in this forum would agree) :-)

Read a few threads in the forum of other owners complaining about this too. Is there any solution for this?

TIA

Not sure whether you have already checked, but at times a simple AC filter replacement can do wonders to your AC. Mainly in our cities we need to change it often

Car was serviced by the previous owner just 2 weeks back at VW service center. But I will check once again with the service advisor.

Yes I did, a month and a half ago. Total cost came to close to 15K.

Cheers

I have attached a image (shot on a potato phone, sorry) with whatever needs to be done. Nothing major.

Unfortunately said image (VW's guidelines) only shows upto 105000 kms and not the 120K kma, but the work was almost identical.

Cheers

I own a Mar 2015 registered 2.0 TDI DSG Highline first owner Jetta, which has done close to 48k Kms as of now. The car was going to be up for sale in 6 months or so.

The car is in good shape, has new tyres all round (replaced in November last year), a brand new Amaron battery (replaced last month), and has complete VW ASS service history. It being a white Jetta, there are some scratches and small dents which come from owning a white car in India, but I will try to get them fixed before sale.

A friend of mine recently jumped right into the scheme of things, and proposed to buy my Jetta, as an upgrade from his current sedan. Since he is a friend I really want to quote a fair price to him.

So the question is, what is a fair price for my Jetta. I am looking for inputs from experienced members, and also those who have recently bought or sold their Jettas.

Please help forum.
Hi Forum,

In the context of the above post from me, the friend of mine backed out, so my Jetta would be available for sale next month.

I am wondering whats the quickest way to get a good deal on the sale, and which portals to use. I see a myriad ways of going about it like Cars24, OLX even Facebook , obviously each may come with their own pros and cons.

Please advise. Members with recent first hand experiences please take out some time to share the same.

Thanks in advance.

Are you a Jetta owner? Do you like to use the rear armrest while being seated at the back? Do you get irritated by the rattle that the boot pass through plastic trim makes?

If your answer is yes to the above questions, get yourself this product and make your life rattle free-

https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B08...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I went with the 20mm width and 5mm thick version though now I feel that even the 3mm version would have most probably done the job. I'd let the pictures do the talking now-

Basically, you need to stick a small patch of the product at the upper part of the plastic trim. It might be difficult to close it the first time after applying the adhesive foam but post that, pressure plays its part(you can see the crease in the foam) and compresses the foam. Money well spent!

Hi guys, have been looking around for new wipers. My current ones work well but there is too much of sound now. I remember someone mentioning after market ones. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

I have tried both non-OEMs (Bosch and Blaupunkt Velocity Flexi Wiper Blades), though they are way cheap than OEM, I have through them out within 1-2 months. The flexible adopters are not a exact fit in the Wiper arm, and causes judder and noise. In moderate to heavy rains, it is raelly scary to use these non-OEM wipers.

So within 3 months I have switch back to OEM, while expensive (~3800/-a pair) they are good with no issue.

I would suggest to go with OEM. Here is my experience captured in another thread..
