    My Jetta MK6 TDI: Lucky dog or tragic victim?

    I let them "fix" it at the last minute in december. Couldn't pass up the money and warranty. HPFP warrantied to 420k now. It's tolerable, but to this princess and the pea, VERY noticeable. Might stage 1.5 it after 420k to get those good vibrations back. All right, no more questions for...

    The age of engine downsizing is over, says Volkswagen

    Sober customer in daylight guessed <95k mi on the odometer just this morning. People don't believe 339k mi on front brake pads is possible either. :D I heard Atlanta was 80-90 routinely. Morning is worst here. I've had pick-ups fly up on me at 85 in the wet, even when I leave the hammer...

    The age of engine downsizing is over, says Volkswagen

    I was trying to force a regen in my car recently on 270 for many miles at 64mph so 5th would be at about 2050 rpm. EVERYONE passed me. :rolleyes:

    Appears to be a Fix for Gen 1 cars! Gen 2-3 are Software.

    Anyone think they may balk at my 2micron filter kit? HPFP is original at 337k miles.

    2.0 Gen 1 fix approved

    On a 2009 sure, since it gets one anyway. On an '11, will they make you pay for a new dpf and egr (if defective/broken currently) in order to get their fix or would they to have eat that in order to make the car compliant?

    My fun experience trying to buy one of the remaining new tdis.

    Why not offer 50 or 75% down payment and ask "how risky am I now?" ;) Could you get the $5k off with a VW "high risk loan"? If so, who cares what they call it, or the interest rate, you got the money to get their loan and quickly pay it off, screwing them out of most of their interest profit...

    After 260k miles, traded out my original TDI* for a new Jetta*

    I didn't, I had to buy a whole set, others just not pictured. ;) Don't even need them, believe me, I've ranted about not being able to buy a single driver's mat for ages. It's a blatent waste of resources and money. Complaints about single occupant cars started decades ago, so how hard is it...

    % of turned-in 2.0 Liter TDI

    Was the number of units originally sold about 490,000? Here 475,000 is cited, so might that indicate about 15,000 of the '09-'15 TDI have been already been totaled-out or otherwise dismantled through natural automobile death causes? Where do these count in the 85% goal- would 85% of the 490k...

    "TDI" monster mats discontined/superceeded

    "TDI" monster mats discontinued/superceeded If you want a new set, ever, best get some now, IF you can. Be careful though, if you ask for TDI ones they may hand you generic model ones, in my case "Jetta"....two dealers tried to pull this and I turned them down. 6 dealers in this town, I checked...
