Probably the last month I enjoy the car before I park it for most of the winter and drive the S10 or Jeep.

Wishing I was driving it. This has been its parking spot for a while now since weather turned shitty...





PS, yes I hate the Ford Transit Connect :lol:

At least it's a nice parking spot.

Guess I don't need a truck afterall!  :lol:



Decided since the roads were clear this morning I wanted to take the car out. The guy at Harbor Freight asked if I had a truck to haul it in "No I don't, but I have a hatchback" "You sure about that?" "Yea, just tell the staff to bring it out." The lady who came up to bring it out went into stupid mode when she found out what it was being loaded in. I told her it would fit, but she wouldn't believe me. Well as you see from the picture it came home with me!

Updateish: Trying to set up an appointment at the dealer as it seems the dual mass flywheel/clutch combo is going out at a rapid pace. Seemed at first like an intermittent slip in 3rd at heavy acceleration, but now it seems to clunk and slip. Now in lower gears you can barely touch the throttle without a severe clunk. Suspension and VC axles check out, so we'll see where this goes. This is what I get for starting a new job that I have to commute about 60 miles a day. Car is still under 9K miles...

On the plus side, warranties are nice.

Yeaaaaa unfortunately not. Just found out both are considered a "wear item" since my car is a manual, which is only covered for a year. Both the purchasing dealer and local dealer told me the same thing today. I will be on the hook for diagnosis, parts, and labor. With the DSG it's warrantied. So I'm gonna keep on going till it goes and go with a single mass and stage 2 clutch kit. Ugh.

So a wear item wearing out long before it should isn't covered? I get the whole wear item issue but it's not like you're coming back about brakes after 40k miles.

I would be calling/writing to VW corporate. It can't hurt.

Yeah, this.  I've never had a warranty claim denied on an early wear.

Electronic throttle body position re-learned. Had a fault stored, but didn't throw a CEL. Seems to have eliminated the issue. I've never heard such, but I'm used to old cable throttle...

Clunking due to a bad throttle body position reading?

I'm not sure that makes sense.  How would your clutch thunking be affected by a bad TPS?

I thought it was some crap myself, but their explanation was the actuation was jerky and dropping in and out at low throttle.

BUT! It lasted for a day and started acting up last night on the way home, so I'm going to try and make the time to take it to the dealer I bought it at. Unfortunately it's 2.5hrs away near DC...
