Volkswagen is pleased to announce an extended Emissions Control Systems Warranty for Mass Air
Flow Sensors for 7 years or 70,000 miles (115,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the vehicle's
original in-service date, on the following Volkswagen models.
· 1999-2001 New Golf, New Jetta, New Beetle 2.0L
· 1999-2001 New Beetle and Passat 1.8T
· 1999-2001 New Golf, New Beetle, New Jetta 1.9L TDI
· 1999-2001 New GTI and New Jetta VR6 2.8L
· 2000-2001 New Golf, New Jetta 1.8T
The vehicle's original in-service date is defined as the date the vehicle was delivered to either the
original purchaser or the original lessee; or if the vehicle was first placed in service as a
"demonstrator" or "company" car, on the date such vehicle was first placed in service.
A VIN decoder matrix (card) is available in VESIS to assist you in determining which engine is
installed in the vehicle.
To accommodate this extension, the Warranty Information Network (WIN) has been modified to
allow warranty claims to be entered under Claim Type E1 for Part Identifiers 2445 or 2359 for the
model, model year and appropriate engines. If the Mass Air Flow Sensor in the affected vehicles is
already warrantable under the terms of the 7 years/70,000 miles, whichever occurs first, California
Emissions Control System warranty, Claim Type E2 must be used.
Code the extended Mass Air Flow Sensor Emissions Control Systems Warranty claim as follows:
Claim Type: E1 or E2 (as applicable)
Part ID: 2445 Gas Engine
Use appropriate damage category and
valid vendor code.
