I have had ongoing issues with codes that related to ignition coils. VW said problem was wrong oil and all short trips. Changed coils, flushed engine, used 5W-40 synthetic but no fixes lasted. VW said a rebuild would correct problem. Finally they agreed to pay 80% although out of warranty. I had the work done that included Timing Case and Camshaft adjuster. What a relief to not be watching my check engine light for flashing rather than the constant red I had learned to love and fear. In addition to engine running smooth, the transmission clunk that many have reported 04 and 05 seems to be gone (they did dropped transmission and replace fluid as part of repair). Also radio text of station and song seems to be working and had not worked from second or third day I owned car (I know has to do with disconnecting battery but has never held before).
Mostly just reporting in and the oil and/or camshaft issues seem to be growing in 04s and 05s. Worth fighting for this repair.
