That's just more than weird, that they would claim that the air-mass sensor is not included in the after-fix warranty. The document sent by VW to the dealers that cngvw posted in post #33 (which only shows sensors and actuators, not filters etc., by the way) explicitly lists the air-mass sensor as being covered.

And the document every owner was sent by VW also clearly states that everything that causes a non-transmission related code is covered.

I guess they owe you $589!

I believe the code charge is standard issue dealer talk, soon as they see the code they should waive the code charge and bill VWoA once its warranty work. Seems kinda nickle dimming you but its just covering their butts.

So i finally got a response from the Dumbass at the dealer. after a day and a half with no call backs, after repeated phonecalls and leaving more and more upset voicemails and emails. i finally get this in writing.... lol " Still working with Audi engineers on diagnosis. Have same sporadic fault for filter. will contact you as soon as we get final words from Audi"
So whats the problem? i have a P0401 code insufficent EGR flow and cracked DPF so fix it and replace them, problem solved....

I cleared the code for PO401 before I went in for the fix on Tuesday. Dealer completed the fix no questions asked. Now the CEL is back on with PO401. Going to try to get an appointment for friday and see what they say.

Spoke with the dealership, they told me they won't be able to give me a loaner this time. I explained to him under the new warranty if the dealer needs the car for more than 3 hours a loaner is to be provided. He told me he hasn't read that yet. He's going to check it out and call me back.

Are the dealers really that uniformed about the TDIs warranty? Seems crazy to me.

It's possible that the dealer doesn't yet see this as a warranty issue.

I don't think they are very informed since the recall just started in Canada. Mine was the first car they did at this dealership. Probably why they did not scan it and look at the CEL history. Going forward after they have to replace my DPF they may be more vigilant.

Yes! Dealers have been uninformed about TDIs since 1996! That's half the reason why this forum is as popular as it is.

So I made an appointment at a different dealer for this morning since the first dealer decicded to not return my calls. I get into the car to drive to the dealer and the CEL isn't on now. I drove to the dealer anyways hoping it would come back on by the time I get there.

It didn't come come back on. So I explain to the dealer that the light was on but has since gone away. He agreed to scan it anyways just to see what it was.

He comes back and starts to explain that its the DPF and I should wait until they start doing the fix as it'll all be updated then anyways, instead of me paying for anything now.

To his surprise I tell him I've already gotten the fix done at another dealership. Then he suggested its probably because they had the whole thing apart and it's running on new values etc so it's just recalibrating. So I should just give it a good drive to blow all the soot/crud out and it shouldn't be a problem.

He said come back if the light comes back on.

I've got a dirty tailpipe on my '09 at about 70K miles.
Which brings up the questions -
When will the DSG update be fixed?
What is the likelihood a new DPF will crack before:
Quote:
Warranty Period
The warranty period for the “Extended Emissions Warranty” limited
warranty extension shall be the greater of:
 10 years and 6 months or 126,000 miles, whichever
occurs first from the vehicle’s original in-service date; OR
 4 years and 6 months or 54,000 miles, whichever occurs
first, from the date and mileage of the emissions
modification.
that runs out?
Using the 54,000 mile figure and the cost of a dealer replaced DPF it reads like I may be paying another $4,000.00 (for DPF alone) for my driving privileges, if it breaks just after warranty runs out. That's almost $0.75/mile! A far greater impact than a small drop in fuel mileage.
