Re: My favourite error message so far

Strange! My ID3 has a male voice! And it is indeed useless in every way. Most responses are simply the word "Sorry" which pretty much sums up the VW voice control experience. We gave up on it. Apple Siri on the other hand works flawlessly. I keep meaning to transcribe our attempts at using VW's voic...

Re: Pre-Purchase Help Requested

I don't know if you resolved this or not. But your ID3 has the same fault as mine did. My local VW workshop finally fixed it in the spring at the same time as doing the 2.1 upgrade. I ultimately stirred VW into action by emailing weconnect-support@volkswagen.de to report the fault and had a back and...

Re: System defaults

Also finding lane assist very annoying living in a rural location. Regardless of who is driving, the car is frequently pinging us (audible and with message on dash) suggesting we're too close to the verge on the left (we are not - the roads are plain just narrow, with no markings anywhere, and soft ...

Re: Is Maintenance on a lease good value?

I did not choose the maintenance either. I felt there's a lot less to go wrong (famous last words).

Re: Pre-Purchase Help Requested

When delivered at the beginning of 2021 my ID3 was the same - Pre-conditioning using the app only worked when the car was plugged in. After having the software updated I can now reliably precondition anywhere using the app (as long as there is mobile coverage!). I would check the version of your car...

Re: Thud sound at low speed ?

I’ve noticed a quiet thud occasionally but it’s the heater kicking in. But I think it comes from the front of the car. Not noticed any other sounds related to ACC.

Could this explain it?

Re: THINGS MY DEALER DIDN'T TELL ME ABOUT CHARGING

>> I also feel smug that I've caused virtually no CO2 emissions since December. .

If only that were true in the UK where our electricity generation mix is 40% from burning fossil fuels, mainly gas. Glad it’s very slowly improving with all the renewable investment.

Re: WeConnect app

Has anyone successfully used the We Connect app to precondition the ID3? My We Connect account is set-up fine and the app reliably connects - it shows range and charge status correctly. But the heating/cooling has never worked - three different errors are shown on iPhone depending on... sun spot act...

Re: What a nice car!

Great post. I concur with your VW dealership salesperson observation; many seem to be absolutely clueless about the product. I suspect VW sacrificed the staff training and preparation, as with the software readiness, in order to just get product out there come hell or high water. >>plenty of rapid c...

Re: OUR Real World Range

>>All in D Just curious - assuming you're aiming for best economy / range, why are you driving in D instead of B? I use B by default - Straw poll: I'm wondering what other owners prefer, D or B? The regen braking seems to offer moderate range boost - unless on continuous motorway style roads with ve...
