Um... are you sure about that? For the Gen 1 cars (like yours), they got a new DPF as part of their phase 1 updates. So what you're saying is that if someone, which I'm sure many did, had cracked DPF (soot on tailpipe) that VW was going to try and make them pay to "fix" a part that they were about to replace?Not sure about the phase 2 portion, but the phase 1 portion it was required that all emissions components were functioning as designed. If you had a cracked DPF, you had to pay for replacement before they could complete phase 1.
For the Gen 3 cars, we only had software for ECM and TCM (for us DSG peeps) and I'd think it would have been rare for one of those Gen 3 cars to be out of the warranty coverage for the DPF that soon.
