The info is not really secret. The answers are there,all you have to do is buy a reman pump and take it apart. Same with the latest revision pump,buy one and disassemble. May as well get a 2012 Passat pump to take apart and check for changes too. The answers are there.............you just have to be willing to pay for them or be patient and wait.

Doesn't the lemon law have to be for the same incident? I know that's how it was in Wisconsin years ago.

Well, I had the car towed to the dealer for a no-start/stumbling issue that they first identified as intercooler freezing, then found HPFP failure might have been the cause. Three trips to the dealer, ~12+ days out of commission.

For NJ, it is 20 cumulative days at the dealer, or three attempts to fix the same issue in two years of ownership. You have to give them a chance to fix it though, so if I encounter another problem, I might make the lemon claim. They'll try to fix it again, and if it reoccurs, VW buys it back for price paid*mileage/100,000.

I honestly just want my stupid car to work. I bought it new and have had a multitude of problems with it. I also have a 23 year-old 150,000 mile toyota MR2 which has been flawless. And I beat the crap out of the MR2 in autocross.

Lets see. The odds seem to be this: 98/99 percent chance of no HPFP problems....1/2 percent you might. I'll take those odds.

ROFLMAO.....You kill me. Read my thread on my JSW's second flatbed ride. I must have bought the lightning rod package. You VW apologist's kill me. Is the sand that warm around your head?

I want to keep my car, but there are no answers on how to make it safe to drive. I guess I could run a analysis on every fuel station before I buy fuel. I guess that would be the next step up from my "buy every gallon form a major station with high turnover"

I could inspect my filter every day and flush the system and R+R the HPFP for inspection weekly.


Or I could wait for the second fuel system to be installed and trade in this nightmare.

There is nothing wrong with being wrong and admitting it.

Could you post a link to the post he 'called you out' in?

I think what he posted was that he didn't care what you have been 'arguing' about.

He does have a point about his friend having cancer vs. anyone having a HPFP failure... they do not begin to compare.

The failures are reported as running less than 2% unless you have official data stating otherwise.

Wrong again............Let me help you out. I don't care what your position is........got it????? The subject has been beat to death. If the frickin HPFP takes a dump in my car I'll check with VW and get it fixed. It's not the end of the world here at least for me

So try this and see if it helps: Open up a beer take a swig and try to understand what I said.

Actually I believe for the 2010 MY it's even less than that. But hey there, I'm NOT calling you out on this....OK?

Stating things as they are known is not apologizing for anything. As far as we know at this time, the odds are slim.

My position is exactly the same as his. He took one post out of context and told me to give it a rest as it was a minor problem. I never argued otherwise.

It happens all the time where people jump in during the middle or the end of a conversation without bothering to read everything that has been wrote.

I'm fine with what you said. It has been my position all along.

Given the lack of facts and any statement from VWoA, with some notable exception much of what has been posted in over 3100 posts are conjecture, speculation and unsubstantiated personal opinion. You are entitled to your opinions, but we have rules about decorum, etiquette and maintaining civil, respectful discussion.

I realize that people are very passionate and concerned about this subject because it involves a lot of uncertainty and potentially a lot of money that may or may not be covered by VW down the road. But this does not excuse the absolutely adolescent behavior by some people here. The line is drawn on the sand: if you can't resist picking arguments and agreeing to disagree in a mature manner from here on out, you will be banned. For a long time. I will determine the length on a per-case basis, but it could be as long as 6 months to a year. This will ride us through hopefully to a time when we have some hard facts and answers, whether from VW or NHTSA. Be hereby forewarned. There will be no other warning before a ban is handed down and no amount of whining (yes, it has happened) will alter the decision to ban or the duration thereof.

As a postscript to the above, since it has also happened in the past, be forewarned: trying to get around a ban by registering alias accounts is ABSOLUTELY NOT TOLERATED. If you have been banned for a temporary period and come back under an alias, ALL YOUR ACCOUNTS WILL BE BANNED PERMANENTLY. A few people who tried this, who know they are and some of whom are posting in this thread, are very, very lucky to still have posting privileges.

(he now owns a JSW). He loved the engine and he never put a penny into engine repairs.
However the rest of the car nickled and dimed him to death (actually with an MB it dollared him to death).
He got sick of replacing window regulators, windshield wiper motors,
seat controls, and almost everything else besides the engine.
If you think VW parts are expensive, look at Mercedes parts. [You are absolutely correct!]
I'm not certain it is the clear cut choice you make it out to be.

Have Fun!

Indeed. Time will most certainly tell.

Yes. Sold the JSW TDI to CarMax as I was in a hurry. No time for a private sale.
I did not want the CDI to get away and I needed the money from the VW to purchase the Benz.

What year was your brothers? It must have been an eighty something?
