    If more customers completed the survey honestly it might help to get rid of some useless mechanics, maybe even some of the useless agents I have come across - or are you happy spending your hard-earned on poor work and extra time caused by incompetence?

    Looks a bit like the thin end of the wedge towards limiting access to more and more information in the name of security.

    Everyone should be used to that by now......................

    Edit: BYW, As far as I am aware, manufacturers are legally obliged to allow access via OBD by non-authorised users to only a limited amount of information, mainly related to emissions and safety considerations.

    So, in the future, private users may not be able to access all the information available to authorised users, on new cars. At least until cracks are produced

    The trouble is customers trash the service department for factory or sales faults so the picture gets lost. I know someone who trashed the service survey because a week after the service she got a puncture...

    I've started a specific thread on the Mk8 GOlf losing connection to the VW servers. We need to get to the bottom of this.

    That will always be the case as long as they have star system rating, they should insist on contacting the supplier before making bad reports, as ebay does, and insist on details of the problem.

    I've had similar issues; my 8 week old car has had b its infotainment faults and front hazard faults. All due to software errors. The problem is with car manufacturers getting into the software business, which is never a good idea.

    Does anyone know which company provides the development of the interface for the Golf? Seems VW may have changed providers with this company not providing satisfactory results. The software it self isn't that complicated compared to offerings from other companies.
