Default 2012-2013 Passat Turbocharger Warranty Extended to 10 years/120,000 Miles!

Turbocharger Limited Warranty Extension VWP-14-04
Quote:
Volkswagen has extended the Emissions Control Systems Warranty for the turbocharger under specific conditions to 10 years or 120,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the vehicle’s original in-service date, for certain 2012 – 2013 Model Year Volkswagen Passat TDI Clean Diesel Engine vehicles with engine code CKRA.

The vehicle’s original in-service date is defined as the date the vehicle was delivered to either the original purchaser or the original lessee; or if the vehicle was first placed in service as a “demonstrator” or “company” car, on the date such vehicle was first placed in service.

This warranty extension is fully transferable to subsequent owners.

What is the Problem

Volkswagen has determined that, under specific conditions, the turbocharger could malfunction and may cause the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) on the instrument cluster to illuminate due to the presence of specific fault codes caused by this component. Additionally, you may hear noise coming from the turbocharger. This condition may also lead to reduced engine performance if the MIL-on issue is not addressed.

The MIL is part of the on-board diagnostic system. Please refer to the owner’s manual for additional information about the MIL. In some locales, an illuminated Malfunction Indicator Lamp could cause the vehicle to fail a smog check inspection, and the vehicle registration application could be denied.

Please be aware that other conditions (unrelated to the issue described in this bulletin) may cause the MIL in the vehicle to illuminate. Customers should be prepared to cover all diagnosis and repair costs for these other, unrelated conditions.

After this winter maybe they will extend it to the 2014's. Depends on failure rates I imagine but this is a great step in the right direction.

I wonder if this means they regard the problem as "fixed" with the 2014s or if they're just not dumb enough to extend a warranty on a faulty part for a car they're still selling.


I also see it says "certain 2012-2013" Passat TDIs. What does that mean? Only the ones that shipped with the 005 turbo maybe?

I think the term "certain" means cars that experience turbocharger failure. In other words, they are saying that it may not happen to all cars. Rephrase -- we aren't admitting that the turbocharger was designed incorrectly, just that "some" cars may have problems. Legalese.

I'm guessing they fixed it in the 2014 without acknowledging a revision, just like the revised HPFPs.

That is good news indeed. I`m at about 57,000 on my so far trouble free 2012 and was not looking forward to the expiration of the basic warranty. Hopefully by the time I hit 120,000 there will be some aftermarket options or a decent supply reasonably priced OEM turbos.

I hope you're right, and that it's not limited to a certain serial number range or build date.

Great news indeed if that's the case. Do we get a letter or is this on the down low?

This is good news indeed. Well, bad news for me, but that's bad news I can be happy about.

Now I need to try and track down the three NMS TDI owner's I've done turbos on and see if they can get reimbursed.

Very welcomed good news. Interesting that they categorized it under the emissions warranty and not the power train warranty.

I wonder what the "specific fault codes" are? Those last two sentences could be scary!

Wonder if it covers your towing, hotel, trip interruption, lost work, ruined vacation, etc. too.
