My Passat's engine takes a while to start...

I run a 2015 VW Passat SE Business Diesel and every time I try to start it up it's like the engine will have to turn a few time before it runs; what is the reason and can it be sorted?

Hi Daniele,

Lots of things can cause slow starting of a modern diesel engine, including issues with the fuel system or glow plugs, or indeed the battery. You'll need to get your car along to a good mechanic to have it checked over.
