I think they have already made a voluntary recall. I had sent my car for brake noise issue & there was a recall campaign for fuel system delivery. My car is Sept 2021 manufactured.

I have booked Taigun Highline 1.0 AT, despite seeing all these reported issues in social media.

Lot is being said about fuel pump issue, but honestly I think fuel pump is not related to these problems.

Keep us updated about the status of your car.

Now the place where I reside is in Asansol, West Bengal and the nearest workshop is a good 170km away in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand. I called up the RSA, who were very prompt and arranged for a flatbed the very next morning at my request.

Well, it has been seven days now, and no progress. Imperial Volkswagen, Jamshedpur has not been able to find the cause.

I had rung up yesterday and they said the fuel pump is not at fault. They have no clue as of now even after running the diagnostics. Really don't know when I will get my car back. Will keep all updated.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Hi - Has anyone taken delivery of the latest lava blue GT+ DSG car? Wanted to check if the dashboard inserts is red or grey. I noticed in an online video the GT+ manual in lava blue has grey inserts in the dashboard while not able to find any video for DSG version online. I am looking to book GT+ DSG in lava blue colour but wondering how it would look with dashboard with red inserts?

Red interiors only come in red coloured cars. All other colours get grey interior panels.

Thanks Vivek, that's what I thought as well but my SA (VW Sundaram Chennai) was mentioning that the GT+ DSG Lava blue trim came in Red interior panel for some weird reason. He did acknowledge it was strange but mentioned it was the case. Hence I was clarifying with actual owners if that was indeed the case.

I do not own Lava blue, I have the Rising blue one. I had seen Lava blue in showroom and it had grey interiors.

However I found a walkaround video for Lava blue GT+ DSG and it shows grey interiors.

You are right, great thanks Vivek . I don't know why my SA was mentioning it'll have red interiors.

Sorry off topic, since you mentioned you have the rising blue one, can I check if you have installed the VW floor mats or any 3rd party one. I notice VW has few official mats in their accessories for Taigun (rubber, 3D, cloth etc), any of them recommended from that. In my previous cars, 5-6 years back I had installed the 3M noodle mats, wondering if I should go for the official VW ones or 3M or any other third party one.

I got the rubber mats as a part of accessories package along with rear sunblinds, cushions, boot net, waste bag, USB cable. The rubber mats are fine, I have no reason to complain. They have 3D effect, fit well and keep the grime contained, at the same time they are easy to clean and look good. You can check them out at the showroom. Only missing part is the coverage of rear tunnel, so if you carry 5 people regularly then that is something to think about.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Hello, I'm Krishna. I have 2015 Polo Gt. I've been meaning to get her de-chromed as well. Could you share where you got it done in Bangalore, please?

Hi Dev
Good morning, I have booked my Taigun and expecting delivery in a week. So would like to check with you on two things. I am not able to leave a private message so I am replying here.

Could you please detail me on how the chrome work is painted in black? As I also want to do the same for my new Taigun, I am yet to take the delivery but want to check and be prepared :-).

Your model has sunroof, please guide me on maintaining and keeping it clean always. Many thanks for your post.

When I got my Taigun last year, I opted to get the VW branded mat- not sure if its the 3D or 7D one. They matched the quote from a 3rd party one. This does cover the rear tunnel as well. It's holding up well as of today.

Not Dev, but still answering as I got it done recently.


I did mine in Palakkad, Keralam from a known FNG. Before you decide to paint, please find a detailer and get a black / camouflage wrap done and see for yourself. The wraps do stay in place without coming off. Mine got brushed by an auto so I decided to paint over.

3M / detailing mafia / car laundry any of these folks should be able to do it. If you do plan on painting - the service centre does it but charges approx 25-30K. You could check with code6 garage as well. I had also checked for a dipping from Dawn customs, their quote was close to 15-16K

As of Sunroof - I hardly use it. I got the lubed during the yearly maintenance service, I checked it now seeing this question, and it's become really noisy. I need to check as well.

May I ask what the issue was, and if it got resolved? On my last ride I started noticing a weird noise - almost like drum beats when I slow down from triple digit speeds. This has never happened before. I'm due to make a visit to the SC to get this checked.

Thanks Much.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Thanks a lot for the response :-)

But mine is brand new so want to just de chrome and I think that won't cost much. Let me check for Camaflogue and check with 3M in HSR.

Also regarding the sunroof the question is more about cleaning and maintaining, as everyone saying need to clean regularly otherwise it will look like a mess when you sit inside and open :-)

I am having brake noise issue since 18K km, got disc and pad changed at 27K km again noise is back after driving 4K kms. I have escalated the matter and hopefully VW technical team should help diagnose the issue.

The noise is similar to the drum beats, changing pads & disc is a temporary fix.
