My GTI has been at the VW dealer for nearly a week getting timing chains done. They have me in a rental Hyundai Elantra. It’s not a bad car at all, but it excels at nothing and it’s definitely not my GTI. Android Auto is nice though so there’s that?
I get their mentality as someone who works in the industry: I’m in a car so there’s not a huge rush. Plus the aftermarket warranty company was sending an adjuster out to approve the repairs and that can take a while. The job itself only pays 8 hours but I also have no idea how involved it is to get to the timing components on a TSI.
I just want my zippy 6-speed high maintenance German that makes obnoxious whooshing noises back. Monday marks a week and I'm hoping that I'll get a phone call then since dealers are closed on sundays around here.
