I bought my TDI new. I have put on a
lot of miles, so the good gas milage is
great. However, I have experienced
high repair cost so what I am saving in
gas I am paying in repairs. Not many
mechanics can work on diesel engines so
I am a the mercy of the dealer. At 80K
miles my turbo died. Still waiting to
hear why and how much it is to repair.
Service provided by VW is very
expensive ($82/hr for labor).
Additionally, VW charges more for any
work done on a diesel vehicle. Regular
oil change cost $55.
A bit small. Better warranty coverage
or less repairs!
