Good luck with the fight with your CC company.

Dealer charged you for parts they installed on your car. What was fraudulent with that? The dealer has weasel words stating they can't guarantee certain parts will solve all issues, they will still point to the car being a salvage and it's your problem.

If they didn't install charge pipes sure, but some how i think the CC will side with the dealer.

You knew what the problem most likely was, but decided to let them change unnecessary parts??
Instead of taking your car to a competant dealer.
You let them do the unnecessay repair. And then want refund, after taking the car home, because it didnt fix the problem?
Sounds like you were asking for problems....����

Not that it matters at this point, but as far as I have seen, you were not required to get the settlement fix in CA.

This is correct. You couldn’t do mail in registration. You need to go in to an office to register.
Either DMV or AAA office to renew Your registration. You still needed to pass smog readiness. Meaning only one readiness not set. In order to pass smog.

I need to have smog and was required to get the fix done before i could do the renewal. To all the haters here. I have multiple emails asking why they were fine with replacing the boost pipes o my "salvage title" but when it comes to replacing replacing the intercooler their policy changes to "we dont work on salvage titles". That is rhe confusing part.

1. I was forced to do the recall to renew registration.
2. I came to a dealership with no check engine lights.
3. Left and now have a check engine light.
4. Boost pipes were said to be the only way to get warranty coverage.
5. They then changed the DPF

Now they refuse to work on salvage? That is not allowed half-way down the road i want they liable for what they did to my car. I realise from my research that EGR filter is the cause of my light only at this point. They should replace it for free. If i knew their policy of not working on salvage i would never have come here and would of gone to the one in elk grove, ca.

I have since been contacted by the vw hotline thdy they are looking into my case again after i showed them of the egr filter tsb.

This dealership is trash, that is all. Treating someone like this is unacceptable. Salvage or not. I drove the car in and they agreed to work on it. Now they refuse to touch it because they are too dumb to read a tsb that i did all the research in finding and presenting to them.

I posted earlier about this... 2011 jetta..60,000 miles.. I had a dpf and cooler/filter replaced due to the codes popping up..got all replaced/repaired and I HAVE A SALVAGE TITLE...so dealers will honor the warranty...I don't understand how a dealer can refuse repairs under the 'emissions warranty"..especially if there is no provision ( that I'm aware of) in the "contract" about refusing warranty work after the fix with salvage vehicle..

It sounds like this particular dealership has a policy in place not to work on salvage vehicles, which is a separate issue from the emissions warranty but doesn't explain why they started working on it in the first place.

I may understand they may not work on salvage cars..but once they installed the "fix" they should honor the emissions warranty..everyone ( including VW) knows/knew the "fix" can cause issues afterwords..sounds like a suite should be filed against this "dealer"...they implemented the fix on this salvage vehicle..they should be responsible for all that is related to the aftermath of the fix and it's agreed/stated warranty that is attached to this car now

But forcing them to do it is a whole other matter. Might be easier/faster to just go somewhere else. Using the law to force an issue is time consuming and expensive.
