Hey folks, I have a 2012 TDI Touareg I bought after dieselgate, with all the VW repairs and mods completed per VW's specs. I'm now at 118k and lost power at midnight returning from the airport. Had the Touareg towed to my german car specialist; they quickly diagnosed the HPFP failure (metal shaving throughout my fuel system) and I towed to a VW Dealership to get the warranty repairs completed. This was after my shop confirmed their was no carbon or pollution in the diesel in my tank. VW confirmed the same failure, and then used a bench tester to test the fuel (this is literally a sensor with a smiley face and a sad face). My test was a sad face...resulting in VW saying "sorry..you have bad fuel and we're not going to authorize the warranty repair. Suspicious of this test (I trust my non-vw shop), my insurance agent sent a sample of the fuel to a forensic lab and the results came back as first-diagnosed...the fuel was perfectly clean. When presented with this evidence, VW is saying "you should have had us send a sample to our lab..if it came back clean they we'd warranty the repair". So, they did a test, gave me false information, and when presented with evidence to the contrary they are denying the claim. I had to have my car for work so I bit the bullet and spent $6800 at my local shop to have a full-fuel system replacement (30% less than VW's estimate), and of course VW is also saying "you'd need to have us do the work IF a warranty was approved". So...my only recourse as I can see it is to take VW to small claims court. Anyone else been through this that was able to convince VW of America to do the right thing? This will be my last VW (I've had 12 over 30 years).
