Two of the five I have ever seen bad (which is a very low total number) were 2014s, both with 160k miles on them, both owned by the same fleet company.

Thanks for the reply! 2/5 that's 40%, and to get so many in a small sample size indicates that this is a very real and prevalent issue.

Seems pretty rare to me. I can rattle off a half dozen other things I have seen WAY more often. 5 cars out of.... shoot, no idea how many hundred of CR TDIs I used to see regularly. Mostly gone now.

What else have you seen? So most people have turned them in.

I am worried of keeping it with a potential future hpfp issue.

With the updated warranty coming from the fix, the hpfp is finally covered. I'm less worried now.
