  2. Perfect?!?
    Just good that everyone always chew on the evil Teslas! Respect VW once again a perfect one … Timing for a perfect product!

  3. golf ?
    Well, if you look at the I-Net, it doesn’t just affect the Golf. They have the hardware and software in many models across the entire group. The whole drama is due to the margin. Surprisingly, this does not come, you can’t understand that who is currently buying a golf or the like there…… For VW itself this is anything but advertising. Works that of the eidie ?

  4. Oh if it were just the software…
    …The Golf remains loyal to driving behavior and the outer look. So everything is said. The operation is a cramp, not only through the software, but also the hardware. Touch areas instead of haptic feedback on good (!) Switch. Free floating operation through a fluctuating arm in front of the main display. Unlocked buttons. Simultaneous operation of comfort functions such as (seat) heating of the driver and front passenger and other functions impossible – bottle neck only a display. And then ongoing, unmotivated warnings. Drive in the middle, touch the steering wheel, lost data connection, sensory, bring me a workshop… Only real VW fans with masochistic tendencies are thrilled.

  5. Security risk
    Had the golf 8 times as a rental car. This car is with all this IT or. Computer tools no longer operated and basically a security risk in road traffic. In the event of an accident, insurance coverage will probably go out because you had tried in vain to set the heating on the large screen.

  6. This
    Cucumbers should not be called in the workshops – but on the scrap places of this republic! You can only shake your head about what kind of Murks of this group has been producing for years.

  7. No Mr. Konz, Man "could" .
    Prerequisite one, the full package was ordered for a fee. Prerequisite two, it would actually work well. that’s not the case. Or do you think the recall happens from jug?
