HI,

You can try the following:

1. Stay outside of your car and press ignition button (don't start your car)

2. Press the button to move the seat all the way forward till maximum.

3. Do the same to move the seat all the way back till maximum.

4. Get in the car, close the door, start the engine, set the seat to your liking position then press the set button '1' or '2' till you hear confirmation sound.

5. At this point your memory seat should be restored back to the original day one condition when you collected your car from the dealer.

Bro!

it totally worked!

i got my memory seats back, with the chime and all!

your post should be a sticky, it's a really useful thing to know and not to get ripped off at the workshop for them to do the same thing.

thanks again!!

Just did a brake assembly replacement last month after some grinding noise was intermittently detected. It started to get worse and VW accepted my request for an immediate replacement.

According to the notice, there was also a scheduled recall job for brake hose and fluid, under campaign 47P4. Not sure if that in any way contributed to the issue.

Other than 1 case of flat battery and the above, 2 years on and all else has been good.

Happy holidays to all!

Hi Guys,

Happy CNY to all!

Just an update on my passat b8 highline. Just sent my ride for 90k km servicing. Though my 3 years warranty already ended in Dec 2018, I still send my car back to VCS for servicing. 

Except for some niggling issues, my B8 still going strong after 4 years 1 month! Some of the notable replacements I have done the past 4 years...... water pump, small parts of mechatronics, battery replacement (twice), etc...

Anyway, I bought the 3 servicing package (75k, 90k, 105k) when i went for my 75k km servicing back in April 2019, so I will give an update again after my 105k km.

Cheers!

I've been scheduled for a transmission part replacement next month, after some whirling sounds were heard during some gear shifts, when VCS tested for my brake issues. Parts just arrived apparently.

Nice that it's going well after that mileage, @Anderang. I'm only at 36k after a little more than 2 years. Quite underutilised in comparison. Ok to share how much the servicing package cost? Any benefits aside from savings (I suppose) compared to routine visits?

Got mine in 2019 Nov few moths ago. Received call from VW twice to ask me go back for a service campaign to replace rear brake hose. Told me must leave car there for half day. I not free to entertain such adhoc trouble. 
 

‘anyone else also received similar call from VW?

Hi Ryansg,

I bought the 75k, 90k , 105k servicing package at $1275 inclusive of gst.

On top of that, any replacement or repair works during this period will have 30% discount.

Hi Maverickguo,

I did the service campaign during my recent 90k servicing. I was told of this service campaign when I booked my 90k servicing.

Yup. I did mine as a concurrent follow up with a problem I had with my brakes. Brakes are critical part of safety. Better have it settled as soon as you can.

Hi, I think the B8 passat dsg gearbox is generally more reliable.

I have been driving my B8 for more than 4 years. DSG GB so far so good.

Hi bro, wondering When was that? I collected my car in Nov and I wonder why can’t they get it resolve for brand new car. Have to ask me go back after I collect the car.

I was also only notified of the campaign at the end of Nov. Did a check at Kampong Ampat for some brakes issue earlier in the same month (9th) but was not asked to schedule to leave the car.
