  1. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hello. I’ve had my GTE about 2 weeks now and as the weather is getting colder I decided to try the pre heat function in the e manager. It’s my understanding that it preheats the car to desired temp whilst it’s on charge to save the battery, is this correct? I leave for work at 7:15. Set my...

    Hi all 👋🏽 I recently had VW inspect a hybrid system error and replace a fuse (€140 bill for a €3 part… thanks VW) anyways I noticed they also added this sticker to the AC charger. No mention of it in the report but as the car was only in for a service a few months ago I figured if it was part...

    Hi EV community! My drive modes on my Passat GTE has stopped working... well sort of anyway. I'm stuck on E-mode and can't select any other driving modes... the light illuminates only on the E-mode and stays on that. When I charge my car, the car drives in electric mode however, and does not...

    Dear forum users, In these times the gte is only used once a week for a few kilometers if the weather is bad. So last week I decided not to put it to chage because its battery was still almost full. Today I enter the car to check the charge and noticed the battery was completely empty. There I...
  12. 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! I have a Golf 8 GTE on order (due for delivery in April) and am curious about E-mode range. I've been keeping up with the forum but haven't seen any posts about the Mk 8 GTE range.

    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...

    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...

    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.
