For the sake of precision I feel the need to point out that we don't actually "know" this, except in the same sense in which we know, for instance, that everyone on earth is "subject to possible" fragmentation grenade attack by a meth-crazed donkey on roller skates....or in the sense that all diesel engine owners everywhere are subject to possible hpfp failure.

The meaningful question concerns the odds, and we don't yet know the odds. While I increasingly share the opinion that the odds are higher than they should be (i.e., higher than for previous version TDIs), it remains the case that an opinion is not knowledge.

Just trying to maintain the always-useful distinction between what we think and what we know, since the blurring of this distinction is the source of most of the world's problems.
2009 Jetta TDI (Loyal Edition, Campi White, DSG, #1470, built 5/08): 56K miles and zero problems 1/16/2011.
WeatherTech deflectors, Dieselgeek skid plate (both A+)
My other diesel gets 120 MPG (minutes per gallon): Kubota 2630 w/ FEL
My other other diesel I don't even want to talk about (1995 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins 4x4)
