  1. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi there. I'm considering buying a Golf VII GTE from 2017. I found 2 pontential cars. But one of them do not have the 'battery hold' mode in the mode menu, the other do. (See picture) There is only 8 months between them. Is the mode hidden somewhere else, or did they make models without? If...
  2. Volkswagen Passat GTE

  4. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    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.

  8. 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...

    If you are in need of an official set of mats I have mine from my old 2019 e-Golf that covered around 5,000 miles with them in before I swapped to some after market carpet ones that were in during summer when it was sold. I’ll clean them properly before they are sold (see second post for clean...

  17. Volkswagen Golf GTE
