My car booked in for the 20th for the engine software update. Would have been sooner but away on holiday.
What !
It’s not out yet, or is it ?
Do you know something nobody else knows ?
What did the dealer call it ? Is it just to investigate the issue or have they already done that.
If it’s actually available we better get going, there’s going to be a massive rush and queues around the block or each dealership.
I have a "special" relationship with my dealership. I must have, my car has been in the workshop for various faults 35 times in the last 10 months, yes that's an average of nearly once a week....

You can also see from my signature that I'm on car number 2, which will soon be number 3....

Strangely enough, my first car didn't have the 1.5 engine issue, the one I picked up in November does, although not to a massive degree. To cut a long story short, VW have agreed to change the car again, but in the meantime I had a call from the dealership today to say they have the engine software update, and mine will be one of the first to try it. Unfortunately I'm on holiday till Friday, so booked in for a week on Monday, the 20th.

It looks like Its on its way, so some of you might get a call and maybe have it done this week.
Good luck Ian ... you certainly deserve it.

Could this be the one ?

What happens if they fix #2, will you still go for #3 ?

This fix is likely to be for post-WLTP cars only. As I guessed a few pages back, VW are cacking the emissions thing and we all know why.

If you have a pre-WLTP car you are still going to be up s**t street without a paddle.

And I hope the fix works on the newer cars for all owners who deserve a car that is fit for purpose :|

Does anyone know if the software update is now released? I am having a little “discussion” with VW over my 1.5 evo R-line which culminated in me telling them on Tuesday that I want to return it and get a refund.

Low and indeed behold, a day later the dealer phoned me to tell me the software update is available and to book my car in. VW had previously advised such a fix was as yet unknown.

Am I being paranoid or is the fix now ready to roll out?

No ... just standard VW confusion, so probably depends who you ask or which page you read.

I wish you all luck the troc is a great looking car pity that the engine lets it down , I personally have very little faith in vw and think they have turned their backs on all the customers who put faith in them to produce a great car,years ago if you had a golf you got great build quality and the cars were great now you get mass produced under developed shite that they just expect everyone to accept I wouldn't buy another vw if you paid me,you get a crap meal in a restaurant you don't go back!thats my outlook

Will be interesting to hear if they tell you that you have to drive it for 600 miles for the ecu to “learn” the change . That is what Skoda drivers have been told .

Hi All. Just had a call from VW UK Exec Office and they advise that the dealers are rolling out a software fix for the Rooing issue. I have my 1.5Tsi booked in with my dealer this Thursday. They say it will take up to 2 hours and is the first T-Roc they will have done with this software update. I am hopeful that this update is going to work but will not know until first thing Friday morning when the engine is cold. Will let you know how it goes.

Hi ianchelt
Hope all goes well for the software fix, my cars still six months+ from being built did get a call from the the dealer to say they are hopeful for Sept/Oct but I think it will be December/January, at least they have guaranteed my p/x trade in price etc. If it goes into next year I may go for something else. Not all the DSG 1.5tsi are afflicted with the Roo so I’m hoping it’s sorted by then.
I’m presuming your still sticking with VW I remember you had a year waiting for yours, I’ve got the similar engine/DSG in my Golf and it’s fine so somewhere along the line they’ve changed the settings, so let’s hope this solves the problem.
Cheers
Ian
