Ask the dealership service department to look into it first.

The dealership called me back and the mechanic issued a new radio to replace the old . I haven't had any issues about the clock any more

I am having the same problem with my 2017 vw beetle. The dealership told me that it has to be happening for them to diagnose the problem. I bought it new and about 4 months ago. Also had to change the time about 4 to 5 times now. After reading all the comments, it sounds like they, dealership, are trying to give me a run a round.

We had the solution to keep the VW clock to the correct time. When you get in the car, hit the on button without the brake on, put your seatbelt on and everything ready, then foot on brake, start the car. This gets juice flowing from the battery, so the clock doesn't have to be reset. This has worked for the last two months without resetting the clock.

Bob, really that's a solution? I have the same problem and will never remember the correct sequence. I'm hoping the dealership will not suggest this is user error
