Just picked up a 2001 (Y-reg) Mk4 2.0 DTi which on the whole is very nice.
Just have a couple of questions about things that don't work properly etc...
1) The glowplug light (bottle with a snowflake in?) doesn't seem to go out - just stays on all the time the ignition is on - is that right?
2) Drivers mirror doesn't adjust properly - gets to a certain point then theres a "click" and goes back to it's original position (electric).
3) Driver's seatbelt doesn't retract very well by itself - needs a helping hand which is annoying.
4) Aircon doesn't seem to work. When turning it on (engine idling) the revs don't drop for a second like they have done on previous cars with aircon - and the air seems no colder.
Are these all doable under the warranty? (I'm guessing aircon isn't).
My next question is really about fuel economy / driving style. How is it best to drive around town? I have been changing up around 2k rpm and seems to cope fine with that. So 4th gear at 30 etc... Is this ok?
And also what gear is best for 60mph on the dual carriageway? I've seen on some forums they reccomend 4th gear so the revs are out of the turbo band?
Any help would be great.
