July 2003 AG03XMY
Puchased used with 11,600 miles February 2005 :
1. interior light switch disappeared into roof lining
2. noisy wiper blades
3. air bag light - three trips to dealer to cure
4. Rest heater, fumes - several visits, never cured
5. uneven tyre wear from the start, 11,600 one new tyre replaced to match others.
6. Running Gear Fault message - a long saga, multiple visits culminating in lots of new parts and finally "solved" in November.
7. door alignment, driver's door - three attempts at two different dealers, no better
8. Transfer Box problems - in the end new T box, all upgrades and soft ware modified, saga from February to May, lost count of dealer visits
9. Seven tyres from, 11,600 to 42,700, wheel alignment changes, back in at 42,700 and told new four new tyres again !
10. keyless go problems - door handle switch finally replaced
11. Driver's seat lumbar controls back in - two visits to cure
12. Turbo failure at 42,700 miles.

Sold to dealer, would not attempt to sell this car privately due to the above problems, and we believe that the tyre wear issue is unresolved despite all the upgrades.

If you have had, some or all of the above please post and let us all know.

you certainly have had your share of problems.

If I had been you (but this is only me) I would never had bought the car in the first place once I had found out the build date I would have walked away.

Now I know in a perfect world the first cars of a production line and in a new range of motors should be hunky but we all know this is not the case and it is not just VW only.

As said many times before places like this do tend to attract the more negative commentsfrom folks who have come on here looking for answers to their problems.

Don't take this the wrong way right but now that you have sold your Treg why are you hanging round here posting all your problems.

Think you have had a fair crack at the whip with your threads/posts

So pick up your bag and find the forum for your next Motor.


See Ya.

No not really I don't have a problem posting but recently as few of the members were saying how much negativity was going round and this is how I view this post

The guy has sold his Treg he has told us on more than one occasion what he thought about it.

He should be moving on and leaving his Treg woes behind him

afterall this is a site for enthusiasts

or am I the only one that reads this post that way am I over reacting do you want to come on the site and reads about problems all the time which then makes you think OMG the whole range every single car will be like this.

He did not even post it up under the problems section but in general discussion.

Oh well I was only saying.

Well said Fiona.

It was the point I was making in an earlier post.

I know people have problems but I think in the main they are in the minority.

All this negative talk is doing none of us with good reliable vehicles any good what so ever.

Move on.

Rant over......again.

Yup.

There has to be room on this forum to air grievances and highlight faults...but repetitious entries just to maintain visibility is not acceptable. Good call, Fi.

Thanks for your thoughts everyone.

I found this site due to problems with the V10 and a comment from a client who had similar problems with his V10 (mainly tyre wear issues) when we chatted about our respective vehicles.

Never visited a "forum" before since never had such problems with a vehicle before.

You will note that my postings have sustained praise and criticism in equality, and have been intended to perhaps assist other owners who have had similar problems with their vehicles.

Sorry that you consider the comments too negative to stay within your respective comfort zones.

Best regards
Richard Walsh

It's a shame I am reading about so many problems with the V10
I guess I would be just as pissed off if my Treg spent more time at the dealers than on my driveway.

Twelve weeks on and not a fault touch wood, but then it is time someone else brought the Friday afternoon cars.
Disco had more gearboxes than I can remember, Range Rover had its fair share and was so pretentious
Every other driver hated you. The XC90 didn't have many of its original parts it was built with by the time I got rid.
I know from reading the forum that most of you don't think much of the X5, but it's the only car I would own again if the Treg becomes a problem. 18 months old and 40.000 miles and not so much as a missed beat.

Still this is starting to sound like a moan now
So lets hear it for the TREG
Yer
the best kept secrete

Mate I feel for you.... Just a few minor issues then in the time you had the car....

Should have done this before you handed the car back, pointed VW to this page, and then edited all the comments out when they promised to fix your car....
