I was talking to the service manager and he mentioned it may be an issue with the ABS, can only get it checked by the 30th of this month.

Funnily, another ode to the quality of 2.0 models, the aircon control broke at one side.

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 :-)
Wrapping the chrome parts costed me close to 1.2K from a friend's detailing shop. Please get the trims removed, wrapped and installed back. Painting from the local shop was 8k.

As of Sunroof, I haven't done anything extra. I give the car one pressure wash in a month. It's not been that dirty.

Well the remedy currently provided is application of lithium grease. Post the application brakes have stopped making noise.

Well finally I got my car back after three weeks.The ASC was unable to pinpoint the issue so they asked for support from the company.The issue was finally located in the turbocharger servo motor, which had failed.( Part No-04E198725G)

Now this part is not supposed to fail so early, so the hunt for its cause ensued.
Finally they concluded that the part shorted due to water ingress from the plastic tray which is positioned just below the windshield and houses the wind screen washer nozzles.This part is constructed in two parts and are joined in the middle as can be seen in the attached picture. When its raining or using the windscreen washer or even washing the vehicle the water that flows off the windscreen collects in the tray before draining. the joint of the parts which is in the middle had developed a leak and some water was trickling down and falling directly over the servo motor which is situated exactly below the joint.

The solution was application of butyl tape to seal the leak.

The ASC acknowledged that this is the first time they have encountered such an issue.
Keeping my fingers crossed.

It's Good News that the root cause has been identified. The information you have provided is very good. Thanks for keeping us updated.

Glad to see the issue resolved. And lovely to see the root cause found and analyzed. Hope VW (and may be Skoda) add this cowl top tape solution in next service voluntarily as service campaign. I know the probability of occurance may be low but the impact is high since it renders vehicle inoperative.

Nice to see these findings. Need to check how it is in my Slavia 1.5. And I have been guilty of pressure washing the engine bay multiple times and drenching the whole area with all sorts of detergents.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

The service engineer specifically asked me not to pressure wash the windscreen and the engine bay is a big no-no.

Very amused that they concluded. Does it mean VW is not aware of their own car? But good that the issue is resolved.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

VW is changing the engine mountings of Taigun. They called me for an "inspection" and then proceeded to change the mountings apart from S/w update etc.

My observations after the change.
- The mounting itself is softer and much thicker.
- a much softer low-speed ride.
- doesn't make rattling noises over most bumps. even the rattlesnake ones.

The car just got so much better.

Is it for for all Taiguns?
I also received a call from VW Indore for fuel pump recall that too after using it for 2 years. Sept 2021 purchase.

Is this for 1.0L or 1.5L engine variant?

And is the entire engine mounting set changed - Bush, metal bracket and nuts or just the rubber bush?

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Hi,

Iím looking for tyre recommendations for the Taigun GTP. Iíve driven my car ~11,000kms and the Goodyear tyres have had several flats in the last 2 months.

In 205/55/R17, the only options available are:
  1. Goodyear Triple Max (same as OEM) - given my experience so far and the road noise lately, these are ruled out.
  2. CEAT
  3. Apollo
  4. MRF Wanderer Street (the dealer recommended these)
  5. Pirelli Centurato (only run flats available with the dealer in Mumbai - which donít make sense for this car)

Would appreciate any advice you guys can give me here.

Is upsizing to 215/55/R17 safe given the condition of Mumbai roads - Iím concerned the higher ride and potholes could hurt the suspension over time.

On another note, Iíve lately been feeling like the car is not as peppy as before - response is about 75% of what it was. Is this a known issue?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Hi,

Has anybody got the Kushaq subwoofer fitted in the Taigun?

I really like to improve the sound quality inside the cabin and do not want to risk the warranty cover.

My SA told me that it is not possible, but I feel it should be plug-and-play as both are practically the same vehicle mechanically.

Any leads would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Is this a recall? I have not heard yet from VW, mine is 2021 manufactured.
