Beetle 5-cyl

  • 6,000 miles

This convertible only has 6,000 miles and we get this cel code (check engine light) of P0456 (evaporative emission system leak detected (very small leak). Took it to VW in March 2013 when it was under warranty and they did something with the valve and reset the cel. The same code came back in late May 2013. Our 3-year 50,000 miles warranty expired by then. The VW dealer wanted to charge us $140 for just diagnostic before fixing the same problem again. I bought a new gas cap and reset the cel and it still came back. Some thing in this car needs a recall.
