    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...
  2. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi, I’ve a Golf GTE 65 plate. Just returned from a hybrid stop error where they replaced the battery and a wiring loom which had apparently been rubbing and corroded. Since then twice I’ve noticed the car doesn’t go into reverse gear when selected. Once I was parked on a slight incline and the...

    Hey Everyone, Recently I purchased my first plug-in hybrid GTE 2016. I have my own garage so I can charge it from the wall outlet (240V). My question is if you can advise an extension cord that is safe for giving me no more than 2 extra meters. I live in Hungary so I need something like in...
  4. 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...
  5. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi all, First post here. So apologies if I haven't followed the correct protocols! Few questions about the Golf GTE as I'm interested in purchasing one. 1) MK7 v MK7.5 I was on autottader looking at variants. On the spec form the MK7 has 10 more BHP than the MK7.5. Not only that the MK7.5 you...

  8. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    So after having driven to Glasgow and back in the Zoe Q90 from EV Experience, I am thinking that a cheap EV with limits range may not be the correct thing at this time. However, I have been for a few drives with my Father in Law in his GTE and I have been impressed with the ability of it to...
  9. Volkswagen Passat GTE
    I've had my 2017 Passat GTE Advance estate since May of last year and absolutely loving it. With a lot of recent press coverage of the security problems relating to keyless entry I find myself somewhat confused with the system installed on the GTE. Rightly or wrongly, I have always locked and...

  12. Volkswagen e-Golf
    I have a Leaf 40kwh and I am not that impressed with the real world range and the issue with Rapidgate. I was looking at either the PHEV GTE or the eGolf. The reason for this is that I find that the range of the Leaf is only about 130 under normal conditions and between charges on along multi...
  13. 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...
  14. Volkswagen Passat GTE
    I saw mention on the Internet the other day about a potential recall on all VW GTE and e- models over a tiny amount of cadmium currently contained in the charger unit. Apparently ALL production of GTE and e- models has been stopped until the matter can be resolved and there is a strong...
  15. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hey all, First off I want to say thank you for providing such a friendly and helpful forum (from what I have seen). I picked up my 16 plate Golf GTE yesterday, and have managed to have a little play around with it. I want to connect my phone so that I can use Google Maps etc through the screen...

  18. 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...

Ps. Love the car and getting it remapped by Celtic Tuning peeps - stage one will make 250bhp and still...
  20. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Having recently taken delivery of my GTE, has anyone else found insuring it tricky? The insurers I was already with (Principle) had never heard of it and took a while before coming back to me with a ridiculous quote. I had the same issue with a couple of other companies and Aviva had their...
