Car at 125k in late 2014 the seat warmer passenger side tried to burn off my wife's butt and filled the car with burning foam fumes while our 5 month old son was in the car. Called VW and raised hell. They covered the seat replacement and gave me a loaner Tiguan for 51 days while they fixed it. total cost $5300. I paid nothing. This was pre-scandal.

Took it in for the fix had that manifold issue. Raised hell with VW. They covered it so I could get my fix done. $950, I paid nothing.

Now this stupid thing with the heater core, was prepared to just do it myself. Was going to let VW slide on this one. Till the dealer tried to gouge me for the diagnostic fee after I told them what I thought it was anyway. Then told me somehow that a 70 dollar heater core plus 1.5 hours labor would be 600 dollars to fix. Labor rates at Florida VW dealerships must be on par with Bentley or something.... Called VW on Saturday and raised hell yet again. I'll keep you posted.
