I think I’ll try calling VWofA.Your thermostat/water pump housing is leaking. You know it, the dealer knows it but if it’s not bad enough they don’t want to fix it for whatever reason. I bitched about it for two service visits and then the third one had a different service writer who didn’t put up a fight and just replaced it for me.
I remember the first time I saw this on my MK7 and it was the most unsettling thing ever lol.Can vouch on this on my 16 TTS, dealer said it was perfectly normal
In the winters would sometimes get a little bit of steam forming out the front of the grill after the car was super hot lol
