      Always serviced by the dealer, but they want 10 grand to clean it up? WTF? I'd be on the phone with VWoA with a quickness the second "Ten thousand dollars" left the service manager's tongue.

      Bet there are cars with 60,000 miles that have NEVER had an oil change that have had less sludge than that.

      That is proof positive that the dealer has not been doing the services. This makes me want to pull the valve cover off of my wifes passat.

      Hopefully he has proof of every oil change he paid for. If it's at the proper mileage intervals, lawyer time.

      That's worth a call to the regional rep right there in my opinion. If they have all the receipts from the dealership since Day 1, then they need to provide them to VWoA to see what can be done(if anything).

      Suffice to say that's not natural. YIKES.

      Agreed. Serviced at the dealer since day one, the engine shouldn't look like it's been neglected since day one. Unless there is some other underlying issue, the owner's shouldn't be paying a penny of that $10,000 quote/bill IMO.

      poor VR6
      there is no way it would cost 10k to fix.. even if you bought a new longblock it's not $10k
      this is the reason they call them "stealerships"

      I predict 20%-50% offered by the regional rep.

      Any vagcom'ers know what errors something like this would throw? I mean these cars are awash in sensors now it's strange to think nothing got tripped

      No doubt. As long as there is sufficient prove of maintenance (receipts and dealer logs), I'd be making some phone calls for a refund.
