I believe you can do it with up to 10k miles, but check with your dealer to be sure. Also read all the fine print and make sure that it actually covers the HPFP. Also, remember that it is not really an extended warranty - it is an insurance policy and it is usually a money maker for VW and your dealer. Do a search here for "extended warranty" and you will find lots of discussions about the pros and cons.

Have Fun!

I'm not sure what others have done or their views on it, but it is deff a money maker for them.

Basically you're betting them (VW) that their product will break, and you're putting down 2 grand or so on that bet. Either way your loose.

But yes, there are obviously many pros as well (piece of mind)

A. It is a service contract, not a warranty (an important legal difference in some states, I am told).
B. Make sure it actually covers what you want it to.
C. You can buy it at any time as long as you are still under the factory warranty.
D. See member 3193, who is a salesman and gives a discount to forum members.

I just received a letter from my dealership offering to sell me "an extended service contract" as my original factory warranty is nearing expiration. They say "As vehicle repairs become more complex, the likelihood of unforeseen and costly repairs increases with the age of the vehicle." Ain't that the truth.

You can have an extended service contract OR an extended warranty. One is for services like oil changes and others to be performed by the dealer, the other covers malfunctions with whatever systems covered. You can buy them at any time, even after the original warranty has expired, but the price goes up considerably at that point.

Don't bother. Huge waste of money. The chances of you having this problem are extremely small. And if you do have this problem, then you will see by reading the threads that VW is more willing to fix this problem no-questions-asked now than they were a year or so ago. Why pay big money for an extended warranty when VW would fix the problem themselves without the warranty?

Now take the money we just saved you and go buy yourself that big flat-screen TV you've been wanting.

I ended up getting Geico MBI at a cheaper price for a longer period of time - 7 years/100k miles. Worth checking into.

May I ask what you paid for the Geico MBI coverage? And what does MBI stand for?

I did the same. Cost me around 60 dollars every 6 months. Less expensive than buying a dealer's warranty policy, but you have to have a Geico auto insurance policy insurance as well.

You also have to buy it within the first 15,000 miles on the odometer...so some may not qualify. As it turned out, the Geico auto insurance was less expensive than most others anyway, so it was a good deal.

I find this questionable since more than one person here has reported multiple failures—Dweisel, for instance.

I am not a statistician, but I assume that when such a small pool of respondents includes multiple examples of people with multiple failures, the failure rate can be considered higher than "extremely small".

There is also the issue of the high price tag of a fuel system replacement.

Isn't VW betting also that the product will break by only giving it a rather short warranty period?

If VW feels the fuel system is so secure, why not provide something like a 200,000 mile warranty on it? Even 100,000 miles suggests more faith than the current warranty period.

IMO if vw feels this pump is a wear part they should give a interval for of replacement of the pump and if it does blow before that time period they should be liable for all the collateral damage it causes to the fuel system .... It's a piss poor design for any one part to cause this kind of expensive repair !

The issue is, do you think it is so likely to fail that you'll be one of the few ones which had that issue?

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just put an aftermarket HPFP if that's all you're concerned about?
