    front brake noise, ABS ???

    ok. Potentially have another warranty issue.

    Very cold day this morning in Canberra , 5 degrees. when in stop start traffic , the front brakes I think , begin to stick. So when im at a standstill and release the brakes, the car rolls ( auto) a few meters and I can hear a shudder and a slight pull back. As if the abs is stuck or something similar. Also noticed the rpm's were a bit erratic hovering - around 800- 1200 rpm

    What could this be ? Transmission? , Brakes? anyone else experience this ?

    amarok 2016 auto 4cyl.

    Hi
    My 2016 had that too. When the DPF gets cleaned and the revs get up to 900 RPM the control activates the brakes. Got a software update installed and everything was fine afterwards. Ask your dealer for it.

    Greetings, Klaus

    thanks klaus. Is that a known issue and is there a technical paper released by VW ?
