Well, my thanks to all those on vortex who decided to put their foot down with me several weeks ago, to the moderators here who tolerated our persistence, to all those who decided to take the CAS (Center for Auto Safety) poll here on vortex and voted overwhelmingly for VW to stand behind their DSG repairs requesting them to extend the DSG warranty to 100,000 miles, and also to be fully reimbursed for all DSG repairs that were not covered under warranty, YOU GOT IT ALL!
VW has heard YOU loud and clear! Congratulations!
I would also like to thank Mr.Stefan Jacoby, CEO of VWoA for doing what his subordinates refused to do, and for reestablishing the full trust of the VW faithful.
Please read his full press release: http://media.vw.com/press_releases/v...ervice-program
Please note: We haven't forgot about you 2006 DSG guys. Please see below how you can help us help you! And to all those who may have purchased an extended DSG warranty coverage, you should ask to be reimbursed in full!
THIS POST MAY HAVE BEEN WRITTEN TOO PREMATURELY. It's now clear that VW may not deliver on their promise completely. There's evidence that indicates VW may leave out many '07-'10 DSG VW's from their promised Service Program. But letters are rolling in now all across the nation. The content of these letters are not all the same. All do mention that VW will extend the DSG warranty to 10yrs-100,000 miles for '07-'10 VW's only, how many within these model years is uncertain and all 2006 DSG's have sadly and unfairly been left out... and that sucks! Other letters mention that any owner who paid to have their DSG repaired or replace will be fully reimbursed by VWoA. But there have been others that mention that VW is developing a new diagnostic tool to aid techs in the field to detect worn out bushings within the MU... that's about where it currently stands.
