Where I work one of the poor cars is a 2013 Passat Estate 1.6TDI with the key fob that is pushed into a slot in the dashboard. Whenever there is an overnight frost something freezes in the drivers door mechanism such that the door unlocks (as do all the other doors) but it will not latch shut when its closed. If we pour boiling water over the external handle and wait a minute then the door will latch when closed. Anyone else had this weird problem?
