  1. New owner. Finally!

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Great car and when clean a great colour. (It's the same as mine). I recently moved away from Nottingham area. Sad to have missed the changes there. Hope you enjoy it.
  2. Golf GTE to Passat GTE.

    Volkswagen Passat GTE
    Thanks for the thoughts. Sounds good so far.
  3. Golf GTE to Passat GTE.

    Volkswagen Passat GTE
    Hi. I'm thinking about an upgrade from our beloved golf GTE to the Passat GTE. We love the drivetrain and ownership experience but it can't take the dogs easily and isn't heavy enough for very occasional towing duties. If anyone has any real experience of the Passat, particularly if you know...
  4. What's your average fuel consumption GTErs?

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    890 miles on this tank. Best so far. Still very pleased with this car for our driving profile.
  5. What's your average fuel consumption GTErs?

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Return trip to Scotland from the midlands. 3 charges during the period. Roughly 44 MPG over the 1000 miles. Mostly 70-75 motorway plus some city. Still on 80 MPG+ normally with commuting and local trips. Not bad considering it's not what it was designed for. It was a great long distance drive...
  6. Noise on full lock at low speed

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    One more for this. Mine does it reversing into my drive. Only with full right lock. Weird.
  7. What's your average fuel consumption GTErs?

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    As an example, I was driving to work, not in the GTE or I may have cried a little. I had to stop suddenly as the car in front suddenly saw his junction. Nice big gap so no problem. Glanced in my rear view and saw a corsa piling towards the back of me. I slammed on the gas, as the car in front...

    What a shock indeed. VW could definitely inform their staff better with these cars.
  9. GTE arrivals

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Just tried it. Nothing happened. It said no power going to car. Pity. Loved that idea.
  10. Dynamic Chasis Control

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    I drove a demonstrator GTE before getting mine. I think the ride in mine is better in the non-GTE modes than the demo was. This could be imagination on my part. There is a strong difference between normal and GTE and as said above, no change between non-GTE modes.
  11. What's your average fuel consumption GTErs?

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    One and a half tanks of electrons is the limit of my knowledge. I haven't been keeping better tabs on it than that. Must get more into the KWH figures.
  12. What's your average fuel consumption GTErs?

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    I had my first longer run today. 70 miles each way. Charged and fuelled before I left with a half charge at my uncle's house. Brim to brim was 70MPG plus the electrons. Happy with that. Most of my trips are shorter so that should be the worst we see, (in summer anyway). I should add, half M1...
  13. Dynamic Chasis Control

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    I have it on mine. I'm really annoyed that I can't control it manually but the ride is excellent in hybrid/electric modes and the handling in GTE is noticably more controlled. It's not as flexible as it should be but I do like it.
  14. GTE arrivals

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    It finally arrived at the house, an hour after I left for work. (I work near leeds, live near Nottingham.) my wife loves it. Looking forward to getting home for a shot.

    Quite so Tim. I get an email and a text every time. Excellent feature.
  17. Quiet here.....

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    I made it to step 5c today. (Near the UK). Getting there. Until then I'm just enjoying reading other's thoughts and hoping it's going to be reliable as we wish to keep it long term.

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Jinxed.
  19. GTE arrivals

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    There is a towbar option on the website now with mention of electrics for a caravan. I would have ticked it if it had existed when I ordered.
  20. GTE arrivals

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Very good looking car. I also like the tints. Hope you enjoy it.
