Boy, what a grand way to alienate VW loyals and send them to BMW or MBZ, albeit for maybe a CPO or used, as opposed to brand new.You are correct, I have very little faith in VW or others these days. It seems to be the norm to screw over car owners, I guess they figure we have no other choices! The way VW handled this whole HFPF thing is pretty sad and the new letter just pours salt on an already sore wound, IMHO. We buy diesels to go the distance, the CR's just aren't. You pay a premium for the CR and for that "bonus" and you are getting cheated.
You get an HPFP replacement but nothing else so says the rumour and that's also the way the letter reads, and before, they were doing goodwill for whole shebang. Now, even if you're one mile or one day over, you will get shown the door.
Question: is MBZ or BMW having similar problems in their diesel fuel systems???
