Yup - had shared list of issues when I gave it for servicing. That included loose hand brake. They called up same day evening, stating there was problem with the wheel hub which they will be replacing under warranty.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

My friend Nilesh replaced his GT Taigun's rear wiper with oem Polo rear wiper and it's an exact fit. Also replaced the horns with Passat ones. Next is changing the digital cockpit with the one from T-roc.

Is the replacement of the digital cockpit + horns being done by the VW dealers? If yes, I am assuming there will not be any warranty issues - have the dealers confirmed that?

Also, what is the quote for the digital cockpit?

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

I had a weird issue with my Taigun today. The driver side window did not close fully with the one touch that it is supposed to work with. It stopped 1/4th of the way. Continue holding the switch up and it actually made the window open fully. I had to try it a few times to get the window closed.

Anyone else faced this issue or know why this might be happening?

Many a times car door windows lose sync and you need to reset them. In VW cars if this happens the one touch up/down won't work, the window may stop at intermittent position and the remote up and down feature on remote also won't work.

Resetting the window power system is very simple. Hold the button at full top and full bottom position for full 5 seconds. This will reset the settings. The following video can guide you.

This is something many owners are looking forward to. Is it a dealer level fitment? No warranty void issues?

Horn is something dealer usually replace upon request and since it's OEM, warranty is intact. Regarding digital cockpit, it's a grey area as of now because it will also need vcds coding and how far the dealer helps remains to be seen, once it's fitted, I will update here including the price and labour

It's a dealer level fitment and there's no warranty issue involved. I was wondering how much did VW/Skoda saved by not giving proper frameless rear wiper? My 2009 Estilo had one.

Agreed. Cost cutting is evident to my eyes than purse. Maybe VW can make up by providing these minor replacements during service. Wondering why VW hasn't got NCAP tests done for taigun. It will put to rest doubts about quality of metal sheets.

A bunch of people are going for coding here...but i wonder if the service center guys can do this ?
This is horn on lock/unlock generally possible on VAG cars and the service centre guys usually do it. I remember getting this done for my Polo around 10 years ago.

You can ask the nearest service centre guy or maybe someone who deals with VCDS software for help on the same.

This had happened in my 4th generation Honda City. It was actually due to the leftover polish residue, caused due to the shoddy polishing and waxing session done by the showroom during delivery. I happened to see the same in a week time on closer inspection. My car is black in color, so it was visible even on the body panels especially at the places where two body panels meet. Try buffing with a micro fiber towel.

Certainly understanding of fuel consumption improves, and hence possibly the mileage.

Car guzzles petrol on turbo acceleration, mileage drops drastically beyond 100-110 kmph. I have learnt to use cruise control more often, be light on accelator and lesser breaking.

Done with 6.9k so far.

I agree that understanding of fuel consumption improves.

What mileage are you able to fetch? and how has your experience been with the A/C.

In bumper to bumper city traffic, recently, it dropped to <7kmpl; where my Corolla 1.8 CVT and Innova 2.7 AT maintain between 8-12kmpl.

Otherwise, my Taigun 1.0 MT is fetching me around 10-14 kms to a litre. Long term stats for 800 kms is showing 12.2 kmpl. First service scheduled for later this week.

Also, does anyone have any recommendations on which VW Service center is the best in Delhi NCR? any things to keep in mind? (other than the fact I have two-three things to complain/query about) do you suggest that I should go and get it done or plan a pick-drop?

Thanks!
