[EDIT] These are the CV shaft bolts.
So a co-worker of mine was driving her MKV TDi Jetta on Saturday. She was doing about 20 km an hour when her car suddenly did not go into gear. She pulled over and nothing, the car didn't move.
She had her car towed to a VW dealership, which name I will not mention. Apparently the right axle bolts broke.
They contacted her, to let her know that it was abuse by the driver and that she would have to pay the bill even though she still has Power train warranty AND EXTENDED warranty that she purchased.
I've never seen this before and I believe what she tells me, that the car was not abused in any way. Regarless, the warranty should cover this, or am I wrong here.
The bolts look f***ed up. Pic below.
Why wouldn't VW pay for this? I guess in VWs cause the customer is not right after all...
Car in question is a 2006 Jetta TDi, 5spd, 85,000 KMs.
