Questions answered on Episode 48 of the AskDAP Show



Questions answered above

1. I just purchased a new MK7 GTI and got the Fidelity Term Care Select Plan.  This plan covers wear and tear items.  Is this worth it?

2. My MK7 GTI smells like sweaty gym socks.  I was thinking this could be the AC drain line.  The car has 23k miles.  Any thoughts?

3. I have a MK7 GTI with 25k miles on it, when I hit the brake from higher speeds the car shakes like crazy.   Could the rotors be warped in is this under warranty?

4. Looking at a 3.6L VR6 over the 2.0t VW CC.  Are there any common issues to be aware of?

5. My VW MK5 Jetta 2.0t has a sporadic no start issue.  When it wont start the gear selector lights on the dash flash.  What could this be?
