I have owned many older VW, by older I mean 80's and 90's. I have owned 2 Fox, 2 Corrado, 1 GTI, and now a 2001 Jetta TDI. I lost my keys, ordered a new one, and now VW wants me to have my car towed from a location that will cost a small forturne, so I can give them more money to program my immobilizer. I have access to a VAGCOM and would like to do this myself, which should be my right. I tried to get my SKC code from VW...complete waste of time. They said it was for theft protection, I asked if they needed to see my title, or were they protecting the cars from thier owner too. It is sad when companies treat their customers like dictators treat their citizens. My car...My code, stop the monopoly, independent mechanics need love too.
