  2. That’s how it looks !
    It doesn’t really matter whether this affects VW or others. That’s currently the case at VW … well into the general picture. I used to drive a few, that’s definitely over for years. Price-performance underground and quality does not fit either. They still feed on the old ones "I’ve always driven VW" drivers and from leasing, rental companies and company cars. With their new orientation in D with no alternative, it will certainly not get any better…..

  3. Same problem with T5 bus years ago?
    The problem seems to repeat itself, if the T5 buses with electric doors didn’t have the same problem 15 years ago? Didn’t learn anything from the mistakes?

  4. no
    There were problems with the electric doors, but those were the sliding doors and as you’ve already discovered, it was an electronic problem

  5. Passat same problem
    Does the exchange also apply to my Passat BJ 2014? The doors don’t open while you’re driving, but you can’t even close them when it’s below zero. Last winter I also turned on the car once and then got out to scrape the windows, windows were then clear, but the door lock was apparently iced up and could no longer be opened from the outside, then sat for half an hour next to my running vehicle until it was up to speed running heating the lock had finally thawed…Then, of course, I was way too late for my appointment.

  6. Complete agreement !
    There were possibly. the previously customary test drives in wintry northern Finland were canceled for cost reasons? It doesn’t matter, the customer is now the test driver. Now it becomes clear why VW does not give a 7-year guarantee, such as e.g. B. a Korean seller. Such companies live on the reputation of the former German quality until nothing works anymore.

  7. who
    According to the statements by Diess, the idea of ​​buying a vehicle from this fraud company no longer has all the L…at the fence. Because of Volkswagen

  8. Fraud company, hm others have not
    get caught who were "smarter". It must have been clear to everyone (including the KBA, the inspectors and organizations) that with the exhaust gas cleaning technology of the time and the trimming for consumption and low CO2 emissions, the extremely low exhaust gas limit values in the NOx area could not be maintained over the long term. Foreign manufacturers sometimes had even worse values, but nothing happened there…
