  6. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi All, I’m thinking of purchasing a golf GTE 17 reg, my commute consists of a 19 mile journey each way, with the ability to charge the car at work. Obviously the range is stated by VW as 31miles on electric alone and from what I’ve read it’s more likely 20-25miles. My question is - would this...

    Hi all, based in UK. possibly purchasing a 67 play GTE today with 29Kmls. Just wondering what are the things I should look out for?? Will there be any recalls? Common issues? also the warranty expires in 3 months. Can I and should I get a pre-expiration check done on the car before this...
  8. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi all, I've been lurking on this forum for a few weeks now. I've had my heart set on a Golf GTE. I've been doing lots of research, to make sure the car is for me - and It is! However with the MK8 GTE releasing later this year, should I wait? Would the price of the MK7.5 would drop? What's...

    Have ordered a Golf-e to replace a diesel Mercedes ML. Was impressed by the test drive (less so by the estimated retained value after 3-years although understand why this is so) and am looking forward to delivery. But what home charging point? Pod-Point seems to have some awful reviews...
  10. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi all! Noticed that our brand new Golf GTE displays the following light when the ignition is activated (along with the usual depress brake, airbag info lights, etc...) Curiously however, it disappears when the car is fully turned on in any mode. This behaviour is regular and consistent...

    Hello! Picking up our GTE very soon which is configured with the wireless phone charger. I've been able to find next to nothing in terms of information or specifications on it. Does anyone use it and how big is it size-wise? Suitable for phones in 2018? o_O
  12. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi, Does anyone know what happens if you wire a 3 phase plug direct to a type 2 connector without having the PP and CP cables? Would be a 32amp 3 phase plug wiring L1 to L1 L2 to L2 and so on, would this charge the GTE or would it come up with a charging error or just charge at all? If this...

  14. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Morning, Last Wednesday (3rd Jan) on the way home from work I received a warning light in the GTE. “Low Coolant Level - Check”, followed shortly by “12V battery not charging - Pull over safely”. Upon opening the bonnet it was immediately clear that the car had ejected the contents of the hybrid...
  15. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    So for all you guys who've got your GTE, what's been something that's surprised you? Good or bad... I've read up a lot on the GTE but when test driving, something I didn't expect was how relaxing the car is cruising around. The quiet of electric mode, combined with the 'substantial' feeling of...

    Hybrid newbie here. New mk7.5 Golf GTE is now on order, just had to take advantage of the VW diesel scrap scheme. All though I am conscious of my environmental footprint, I had not considered a hybrid or EV before I came across the Golf GTE. I love sports cars and I'm motorbike obsessed, so...

    Hi, Just noticed recently that I should be able to see the pictures from my phone contacts on the Discover Pro unit in my GTE. I have been trying to get them to display with no luck. So, as a final hope, have you done it? Any advice?
