Terry, don't be a jerk.

Some of us have owned VW diesels and have been SHAFTED by VW several times. 2000 Jetta window failures, PD engine balance shaft failures and cam failures, HPFP failures, turbo fails, all kinds and in most cases we were left holding the bag.

Calling it whining is just childish. These are seasoned opinions based on facts of previous treatment.

Guess I have just been lucky then. My 2003 GLI was super reliable only did a few ign coils and wheel bearings on it. My 2003 ALH Golf has been reliable as a tank. 290k on it now. The wife's A3 has been great other than a bad repair by whatever high school student that the dealer had working for them. But I will maintain that if you are complaining about getting paid to own your CR TDI, no matter what went wrong with it, that is indeed whining.

Did you end up doing the fix? I have a 2010 Audi A3 S line, and still can't decide since I love the car so much...but if I keep it I guess I need to schedule the fix and pick up my $6k.... curious to hear how the fix changed the car..
