    Coolant leak

    VWoA claims only "their" independent technicians can diagnose a warrantable repair. They are "independent" only in so far as it's convenient. If you raise the issue of independence, as you have here, they no longer are independent and instead wholly subsidiaries of VWoA. If you want to file a...

    Coolant leak

    Looking back it seems it was covered under the original powertrain. But it wasn't really covered, it was a huge PITA. My Touareg still eats oil now while it didn't before. Better off not having a warranty, imo. At least you can get it fixed by someone or yourself correctly.

    Oil cooler leak should be covered under dieselgate.

    TDI 3.0 - timing chain tensioner covered under extended warranty?

    Unfortunately, the only person in this thread who got any action was Jase and he never came back to give us an update so we don't even know if it's resolved.

    Most, if not all, tuners will update your tune if you buy hardware from them.

    TDI 3.0 - timing chain tensioner covered under extended warranty?

    The issue I encountered was the VW technicians classified this as normal noise so there was no warranty issue to resolve.

    Am I crazy

    Thanks for this info. If it's still sitting up in there does one need to pull it out and replace or just leave it well enough alone? I've got a 2013 Touareg that has an 8 speed aisin, which will or won't have this issue? I'm looking at a 2016 A6 that sounds like it would have this issue? One...

    ProfBrown's 2015 GSW TDI Build

    I just get the set from IDParts and I generally buy all four corners (pads and rotors) at once regardless of the wear.

    Front assist - misalignment - warranty

    I understand the nature of the failure better now :) The phrase of it being "like a wheel alignment" is an example to demonstrate it's a mechanical adjustment that can/is misaligned through use rather than system failure. So in the same way that you driving down the road while never hitting...

    3.0 Fuel Line Covered Under Warranty

    Yes, no cost to discuss this situation with the class attorneys. They have already been compensated to represent us in regards to settlement warranty coverage. It's not a "consultation" in the way you might be thinking. They already represent us so they need to be informed of these kinds of...

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    Thanks for that. As I suspected, the closest authorized shops are about 100 miles away. Do you know if the authorized shops give loaners out when a vehicle is brought in for repair? When I need a substantial repair from VW, and I want to risk the dealership's hands on my vehicle, I have to...

    3.0 Fuel Line Covered Under Warranty

    The whole thing about them sending a part number in and getting a response from VWoA's warranty team seems to be standard operating procedure based on my similar experience. That said, how the dealership defines the failure plays some role in it. VWoA and their dealerships seem to be trying to...
