Hi,

New to this forum. Just got a 2011 Jetta TDI highline with DSG on Dec 3. I live in Quebec City, Canada and have been enjoying the car since I got it.

I thought a diesel engine ran hot and the heater would give lots of heat - turns out you must turn the dial completely to the right to get enough heat to keep comfy at -10 degrees Celcius. Speaking of which, the dash temperature indicator seems to have a glitch, past -9.5 degrees, the minus sign disappears to be replaced by the '1' from 10. Not a big deal, if I am correct this car is assembled in Mexico, they must not be able to test the temperature display at -10 degrees so they probably never encountered this issue...

Looking forward to sharing stats and facts with you all.

The coolant from which the cabin heat comes from is actually about the same because of the thermostat.

LOL, I've never heard of that problem. Does it also have a problem in F?

Ok, thanks for the info.

I haven't tried switching to F so I can't tell, but I am guessing it is a problem with the display of double digit negatives...
