It's back on the play store now. I also could not use the app on my android device and the showroom guys were clueless as to why it's not there on the play store. Had to use my wife's iPhone to track the car stats.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

So I have finalized a White Taigun GT Plus DSG ES (MYí24-VINí23) and have pushed for nearly a couple of weeks to get max discounts - final price offered for car is ~22.85L OTR. With added extended warranty, SVP & accessories, the gross total is working out to 23.55L OTR. DOA devise of this a good price as it is one of their few models left in white in the MYí23-VINí24 category.

I want to do a PDI of the car before processing the bank loan & making balance payment by bank trf.

Iíve got the T-bhp checklist ready and since it had been a while since we purchased our last car, Iím a bit out of touch

This gets ventilated & electric seats for both front passengers, and amplifier & sub-woofer also.

Can the Taigun community let me know whatís specifically I should look for in a Taigun during the PDI? Any software update issues that I should sort out before delivery due to updated features? Since it is discounted, donít want any nasty surprises later on.

Additionally, will be getting a fancy number, so i require the car chassis # & VIN to get the necessary allotment from the Road Transport Authority, so would be a tedious process to swap the car later on.

Kindly help me peeps

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Am experiencing a kind of whistling sound from my engine bay, and the sound seems to be predominant when the aircon is running, turning it off cuts off the sound, but when you press the gas pedal it reappears. Has anyone else faced similar issue?

I had given it to the SC, who immediately on the mention of the sound labelled it as common noise from the wheels and changed his story when i told him the noise is there even when the vehicle is stationary and that then shifted changed his story to its the oil pumps pushing oil and i asked him how long that lasts he told me that it was 8-10 seconds, told him again the whistling sound is there all the time more predominant when the A/C is running. Literally had to plead to get them to check the noise.

So now they told me that they have a slew of vehicles and it would take them 2 days, i was ok with it since i needed the car only the following week for a trip. Initially they told me that the actuator had water in it and asked me if I had driven the car in water, I told them no since the Vehicle was in Kerala since sept and all through the Chennai floods , it was brought back to Chennai only at the end of December.

Finally after repeated follow-ups they told me that they found the issue and it was from the turbo and they have arrested the noise, got the car delivered on the previous night of my journey, only to find the noise still there, lower than earlier but still present.

We needed the car so took it drove it to Bangalore and back with no issues or warnings other than the whistling sound, let the SC know that the issue wasn't fixed and I would send the car back once I return to Chennai.

If any of you have face this issue your insight could help me ask the SC to check the relevant parts, as the SC seems to be clueless on how to fix the issue.

KUN VW. This is a 2023 manufactured car - they called it MYí24-VINí23.

Again it is one of the last cars in its colour, discount doesnít apply equally to all colours based on availability; loyalty discounts, MSME discount, corporate discounts, accessories discount, SVP discount & Ext. warranty discount have all been factored in, in addition to the cash discounts.

Do push hard for discounts between various showrooms, otherwise these guys will not give in. Iíve been looking from Decí23 and finally arrived at this between various showrooms with lots of time given for them bite the bullet and climb down.

I have written to VW asking for more clarity and quick redressal of the complaint, and they have also been communicating with my service center, from what I was told.

Anyways, I have no choice but to stay put and hope this is a one time thing. So much for choosing VW over other cheaper alternatives
Providing an update on the above issue. The vehicle was returned to me after 10days at the service center. The ac worked hassle free for a week and now to my horror has shut down abruptly. The car is back at VW but this time they seem clueless about the issue.
There is a gas leak somewhere is what the service manager keeps saying but they are unable to locate it even after 2 days. I have written to VW multiple times and there seems to be no solution till date. Its extremely frustrating when your brand new car spends half of the first month at the service center. I am still exploring legal options and have posted regarding same on social media platforms. Should I proceed legally for replacement of the faulty vehicle that I have been sold, or is there any other way to get in touch with higher ups at VW. Kindly enlighten .

Tag them on twitter. The VW 2.0 is plagued with many issues- engine mount noise, ac, fuel pump and rattles. I think this is a half baked product and the sales number speak about it. Try tagging them on twitter and customer care email shall help. You will need to get in touch with VW so that they can guide the SC to rectify your issue.

Try to check with some other SC as well. Most auto companies transfer the issue to SC only. Maruti & Hyundai have a good follow-up though when addressed to them.
