    had our golf in recently 2.0 tdi bluemotion match, after having the change to the software on the ecu the car now intermittently misses between 4th and 5th while accelerating. The car has been back to the dealer who couldn't find any codes showing. We are now keeping a log of when it happens and the garage need the car for 3 days to under go more test? Has anyone else experienced any effects or problems after the recall? cheers neil

    I don't know what your vw dealer has loaded into your ECU as apparently according to My local Vw dealer Murrys Vw there is no software fix as yet for the 2.0 BMT engine only the 1.6 diesel.

    think we had the letter from VW in May, ours was the first 2.0 they had done in the dealer.

    Reports of lots of motors running differently/noisier.
    General consensus on here is not to get it done.

    Hi, I have exactly the same model as you had the reset done in May ever since then have exactly the same issue you've been experiencing, my car is now on its 4th trip back to the VW dealer to try and resolve, every time its handed back to me as no fault is recorded, this time I've told them I don't want it back until its fixed! Have you had your issue resolved as interested to see if it was confirmed by your garage and fixed, as mine is driving me insane.

    I sent my Passat 2.0 174 in two months ago for the recall re-mapping. Problems from the first day include:- high revving at idle which wont die down until I switch off and re-start the engine, huge increase in general fuel consumption, engine cooling fans coming on in sub zero temps and won't stop. Stop /start no longer works (partly due to the high revving) Car is generally sluggish. I am visiting VW today with the full list and a copy has gone to my solicitor.
    If they think this fix is working, why didn't they do it from the beginning?
