A few weeks ago I posted on this site that I've been getting spurious errors on on the dash?, well the cars been back to the garage today and they say the VW badge was dirty on the inside?? Beets me the cars only done 1900 miles and new last October and only been out in a fine shower of rain, not exactly been thrashed down the motorway in heavy groty conditions, kept in garage rest of time, so how often have we got to have these kleaned

I've had one fault occur in a major downpour but other than that, it's been fine. Hopefully you won't have any issues again, at least not for a long time

That's correct, at least according to the manual

I do not use the cruise control in the rain and would not use the ACC as well. The car could hydroplain and the CC or ACC might decide to speed due to the resistance which is a very bad idea in such cases!

When you hit a water patch in the road, your car encounters a force and decelerates. The CC will then try to maintain the speed and will accelerate, which I have learned should be the opposite - remove the foot from the gas pedal because it can be dangerous.
