Default Waiting time for fix

Who is waiting for the fix and what is the average time you have had to wait?

Local idiot stealership has us on list last 2 months with no promise date.

No list or wait required at mine. Called a week in advance to schedule, drove in and picked up loaner car, drove back later that day and picked it up. It was that easy.

I would go to another dealer if you have your authorization

That's the problem, nobody else for at least a hundred miles.

I am wondering how desperate VWAG will be to get them either off the road or fixed? I don't really want to give up my car, nor do I want to take the 2mpg hit either. I just wonder if they will dangle the carrot of a newer, yet retrofitted, car as Sept approaches. Anyone else consider that or I am just dreaming?

VW does not care.

fix, don't fix, keep, don't keep, no matter to them.

But with your 2009, if it has the DSG you probably want to wait to see a final, for every affected car fix.

my 2009 with DSG has been in the dealer for the fix since 15 August. dealer called this am and let me know that two of four cars they had pushed into the lot after a fix and failed transmission software update responded to the latest update, but not for my car and one other.

Hmm, good to know Meerschm. I had planned to wait until late in the game anyway. I mean, why give up the MPG's early??

the incentive for the fix is $$ and the warranty.

could be a good trade for a couple MPG

got it fixed, got the money and they were very implicit on the new warranty. haven't seen the mileage drop as we are still on summer fuel in tank. reset learned parameters, runs like new again.

i'd get it fixed and take the money, the warranty is very comforting.

Do you have to go thru the whole process to find out how much $$ you get? Care to share what you ended up with? Via PM if you don't feel comfortable.

What does the warranty cover and what is it's duration? Thanks for any information!

depends on the model year and miles on the car. (and a few minor option adjustments)

not too hard to punch in.

you can get a pretty close estimate from the charts provided.
if you want some help, need the model year and how many miles on the car.

minimum payment with the fix is $5100

warranty covers the exhaust and emissions system, the fuel system, and pretty much everything associated with the engine, if it makes the MIL go on. this means the HPFP is covered. terms are 48 months or 48,000 miles, stick shift gets another six months.

(I expect they want you to pay for wipers, tires, and brakes,......)

With your 09, assuming at least normal mileage, you should get the minimum payout of $5100. Only way to get more is really really low miles.
