Mine has 206,000 miles on it. Even though I like the car and it performs like new with no issues at all, I most likely do buyback and replace it with a 2015 Jetta TDI. It's odd, I have not even replaced the brake pads on it yet, but high mileage is a little concerning at this point. I wonder what other high mileage TDI owners are doing... the fix or the buyback?

I'm at 125k miles and getting the fix done today. Another 4.5 years of warranty and $5200 are the deciding factors.

Those are certainly two good reasons to get the fix! I'm with you! I have 155K miles at the moment and I've had the fix for a little while now.

Having had the fix on my 2011 TDI Manual Transmission Sep. 2017 / 5000 miles ago, I came to observe that the mpg is the same ONLY on the MFD once I fill up it is way off when entered into the Fillup App on my phone. MFD says I got 42mpg but the App calculates 39mpg. The MFD used to be spot on prior to the Modification. I think this is due to more Regens now.
Also total mile range has shortened from 650+ to 590 miles. :-(

....looks like circa 10 per cent drop in range.

Not good.

Just back from the dealer and is my wife ever p******. Had them do the 120k service while in there and that ended up being just over $1100. Looks like the oil change has doubled since last July. The biggest issue is that the wiring harness coming out of the mechatronics unit is leaking dsg fluid. They want about $2000 grand for that repair. So much for the VW payout.

Sorry to hear that; that clearly sucks.

On my 2012 JSW, regenerations seem to be spaced further apart now. The soot level (read from the B2C5 location in the 06B2 OBD reply) used to increase about 0.1 gram/mile, and trigger a regeneration at about 170 miles before the fix, whereas now it reaches 23 gram after about 320 miles before it triggers. The exhaust temperatures near the cat and DPF now reach >500C occasionally between regenerations for up to 30 seconds or so, which had not happened before. This leads me to think that soot might build up slower, maybe due to the additional NOx trap regenerations. With only about 900 miles after the fix, I can't tell yet what happened to diesel milage for my car.

Thatís a lot of regens. You must do a lot of city driving. Typically, mine would regen about once a tank (600 miles) unless I was doing more highway miles. Then the regens were passive and I had no idea when they happened.

I always thought the burnoffs were more frequent than they ought to be, but the pattern was very consistent over the 80k miles. My driving is about 15% city, 15% suburbs, and 70% interstate.

Default Oil leak & loose splash plate after emissions fix

I noticed an oil leak sometime after having the emissions fix done on my 09 Jetta. Noticed a light oil slick floating on top of water runoff on the drive. Put a large baking pan under to collect & protect the drive. Seems to be about a quarter teaspoon per month or less.

Any chance this is associated with having the fix?

Also noticed the main splash plate is not secured (screws/bolts at rear absent) to the engine & is hanging down about 3inches at the back. Is it possible that the splash plate would conceal a minor leak by collecting & holding the oil? In this case, maybe the leak developed b4 the fix and the unsecured splash plate hangs down spilling leaked oil? But why would mechanic not have noticed leak & flagged for repair at normal service interval?

I am at about 220Kkm & looking forward to getting 300Kkm. No changes observed since fix....

Yes, the splash shield will collect the drips/leak unless it is a lot. At least that's the explanation I got about not noticing the DSG pan was leaking.

2nd update: 411 miles before reaching 23.47 grams of soot and regenerating. I'm now at 1000 miles after the fix. So regeneration intervals seem to have approximately doubled. Mileage per gallon seems to be about what it was before; need more statistics.

I had the Emissions Modification and Snow Flap Recall completed on April 3rd, 2018.

2010 TDI Cup 6MT with 142,250 miles.

She was already in regen mode when I picked her up from the dealer. First impression was that power was down, especially during regen. I drove around until the regen completed. I did not notice any increase in engine noise (as some people have noted), but I can tell that they changed the fuel mapping and turbo boost timing. Drives as smooth as always, but I do have to give it a little more RPM's to get the old power level (easy to do with the manual trans). I will probably get a Stage 1 tune once the extended warranty is up. VW money cleared the bank by Friday. I am still waiting on the Bosch payment. Unfortunately most of the money will be going to some needed repairs I had been holding off on (timing belt/water pump and AC compressor). I have only driven 250 miles since the repair, but I will update again once I have a few tanks under the belt.
