A buddy of mine has a 2006 Jetta TDI that he purchased used. Currently has 99k on the clock. From what I understand, the DSG just failed and he got a $5k+ estimate to repair from the local VW dealer.
I tried to do some research on this for him, and came up with a lot of info on the 07+ DSGs being included in an extended warranty campaign by VW. Not much on the 06 cars.
First, I'm not sure whether there is a material difference between the 06 and 07+ DSGs in the diesel cars. Second, and more importantly...given the issues they've apparently seen, enough to take action on the 07 and up cars, has anyone been able to get VW to help out with repair costs on a 2006?
Just trying to see if anyone has been down the failed DSG road specifically with a 2006 and what if any assistance was able to be had from VW.
Thanks for any input/advice.
