Love my TDI, but... 'She' is parked in the garage that is unheated but integrated within the house. With outside temperatures at 20*F, my house at 74*F, the garage is at 50*F. However, it takes 10-15 minutes/7-8 miles before the needle budges off the left needle and 20 minutes/12 miles before I see the temperature gauge reach "normal". It also takes 10-15 minutes before I get warm air through the vents - thank God for seat warmers! Is this what everyone else is getting? I seem to remember that back in the day for some cars you could buy a front radiator blind for quicker warm-up.
