I just went to the dealer to get the coolant sensor replaced and the rep told me that there was a '03 recall' out for the GTI and that there was one for dsg and other for manual. on the receipt it says "RECALL SP 24702599 CHECK ECM SOFTWARE LEVEL . PERFORMED FLASH UPDATE AS NEEDED" Anyone got anymore info?
I have noticed that the car shifts differently and goes up in RPMs faster but I have just driven it for a short distance as of yet.
Wow, thank you guys so much for keeping this up to date. I live 90 miles from a VW dealer and I don't trust a word that comes out of their mouths anymore, so it's always a big help for me to have some ammo like this when I go in to tell them they're delusional/uninformed/confused/wrong.
