Default DPF failure data collection

My 2012 Golf TDI is currently at the dealer getting the DPF replaced under the extended emissions warranty and after reading the forums here, it got me thinking: how many people have had their DPFs fail pre and post dieselgate “emissions fix” and at how many miles? It seems like there have been a ton of people on the forum with this happening and frankly I’m curious if it’s going to trigger another recall or if VW is going to do anything about it.

So, I’d love to do some data analysis and see if we can draw correlations for mileage, mileage since modification/fix, year, model, and transmission type. Yes, yes there are a million factors but I want to keep it simple. If you’ve had multiple fail, list mileage between and if you had one fail pre dieselgate I’d love that data too. I’ll start!

That’s what I mean. Cracked/failed/determined by software and/or VW that it needs to be replaced.

I wound't say a "ton" of them have failed. I have read of some though. They are covered by the extended warranty so I don't really see the point as they will be replaced for free within the warranty period.

Maybe it's the baader-meinhof effect then, but it seems like one of the most common issues post-fix. The part is backordered and I have seen wait times anywhere from 2-4 weeks for the part, so it seems pretty common. I'm at a week and a half with a loaner Tiguan. I'm simply curious and want to see if there are correlations. If I'm going to have to replace multiple of these, then this car is gone after the emissions warranty is up.

Just gets more airplay as the other things aren't interesting. I would say they don't have them on hand as they don't change many and don't want to stock them needlessly. VW corp probably has some control over this too. Most people would agree with you on getting rid of the car or deleting if this is an issue after warranty.
