No I was not referring to the squeaking noise from the brakes. The wheel hubs and the fuel pump were changed under a campaign by VW.

Oh, I wasn't aware of this. I haven't received any communication from VW regarding such a campaign.
Is fuel pump replacement being done for all cars or just the ones from a particular batch (the ones prone to the EPC issue)?

It was done for my 1.5 Taigun but has not been done for my 1.0 Virtus. Hence assuming it's for a batch of cars.

I finally found time to get this addressed last week, apparently there was some moisture content in the pads. I'm suspecting if it came from the degreasing I did a couple of months ago. I'm told that the pads can still do abouts 7-8k kms more before I replace. That that's it abouts 22-23k kms for life. Wondering if it's too short of a life time.

Wasn't charged with anything for this assistance.

I checked about this recall also, and its for specific series of cars and not for all.

I also got the a piller noise issue addressed. I wanted to get the engine bay cleaned but I forgot as I dropped the car off.

I am told there is a new software patch due in December to address some issues with iPhone connectivity. I'm hoping it'll also address issues with Samsung galaxy series connectivity issues on wireless AA.

The service centre is now providing assistance with third-party 360 degree camera solutions costing somewhere around 38K for the installation. I couldn't find time to discuss this.

It may be an overkill for Taigun, but does anyone know if we can install front parking sensors for Taigun and also have an option to turn off the sensor noise when we need to?

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Finally managed to fix my fault driver side window at EVM Trivandrum. The BLR service centre (Apple Auto Whitefield) was not able to fix it and had attributed it to some software update. EVM folks said it is a motor complaint and replaced it under warranty. Had overall a much better experience at EVM compared to the sh*t show at BLR centre. You really have to visit that service centre during a weekend to really understand the chaos they manage to have in that place.

I have written about this squeaking noise while braking before, and while it is true that the service centre has gone out of its way to look into the problem and make time for me, the problem is now a year old and they are still unable to solve it permanently.

A few days back, I told them to replace the brake pads but they showed me my pads and said there was 75% life still left in it (manual TSI purchased in 2021). Everytime I show it to them, they probably lubricate the calipers and the noise goes away for only a day or two before it reappears.

Anyone whose service centre has found a solution please let me know. I am going to get to the bottom of this any which way now.

Learn to live with it, I have been complaining for the last 2 years, only solution with VW tech team provided is lithium grease which works for a month. I even changed my brake pads and disc and problem did not go away.

It seems like we will have to live with it, but what is the mechanical cause? Could it be that the brakes are staying applied after release? Or is it a manufacturing / plant fault and they are loath to recall? Is it friction and heat, which should be addressed immediately? Either way, a reason is needed for the noise. Should be simple enough, but apparently it isnít.

So mine was changed when i encountered the EPC issue in August, according to the service center VW isn't making a recall instead they are quietly replacing it for anyone encountering the EPC issue.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Guys, need your suggestions on dampening for my Taigun. I’m planning to do dampening to stop cabin rattles and door/window squeaks. The accessory shop says dampening 5 doors (with Dr Artex gold HD sheet) will help reduce the rattles and road noise. Anyone here tried dampening? Does it really help reduce the cabin rattle noise? Any input on this is much appreciated.

I have got my door damped for better sound output. It does make door heavy and occasional rattles might disappear.

What my SC said is that they have received n number of complaints and company might issue some remedy or replacement in future. Nothing concrete available at the moment to resolve this issue.

Cheers.
I booked it again and going through it. Making this big financial and life decision alone made all my fears crop up.

Using the companyís lease program to finance.

Anyways, need some help now with what VW official accessories make sense to get through showroom?

Also, any immediate must buys after market accessories?

Got the car back after about ten days. They replaced a sensor associated with exhaust system. Couldn't get the exact part no/name.
ODO stands at 2000 km now. Till date everything is smooth and running well. Did the first free check up as well. There were no errors or glitches. Though it took time, the support offered by EVM VW was appreciable. As per them, they are facing this issue in 1.5 for the first time. They claim that majority of the time spent at workshop was for diagnosis by VW. They had to keep the car connected to the VW server for them to run tests. In the end VW decided to replace the sensor which had to arrive from Pune.
