Obviously they can stick to the letter of the warranty, but the spirit is preferable when there is no reason to be believe that the driver is somehow at fault. Of course, I'd probably not have that same shop touch the car again, so it's likely a moot point. Before you give up on it, just make sure that it actually needs replacement, and isn't a sensor or something "minor." More than one TDI has been sold for less than its worth because the auto trans was declared dead prematurely. Just a little research will help. If you don't have VCDS, many club members will scan for you, there's actually a thread with volunteers listed.

Here's the diagnosis from the shop (which he wants $230 for), cracked K-1 piston or cracked clutch plate. There's not gonna be anything "free" about this.

Was the 01M replaced or "rebuilt"?

Rebuilt. Valve body & torque converter are new.

Ahh, ok. I thought the trans was replaced. Big difference. I wish I could offer more insights, but Rich (kansascity tdi) and Brian (oilhammer) and others have covered the subject in-depth.

If you do the 5M swap, it will have a chance at providing another 200,000 miles of service. If not, hopefully you can find a member here who will bring it back to life instead of parting it out. Save the MkIV's!
