My response from VW was as anticipated, normal. I'm good with it b/c I've said many times here/other places, it's a noise that I can understand and not a sign of a problem. I wanted it noted for the record.Thanks Mikecnz. To be clear, does the noise stop as soon as you move it to manual? When you shift to manual - you’re still in 3rd gear so the noise theoretically should continue.. you would think. I’ll try it next time I drive it.
KarstGeo - response from VW yet?
