2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)
$8,000. & counting.
In the shop as we speak for same problem - replaced cam shaft & lifters twice.
Started bellowing black soot & delayed throttle.
Had a complete diagnostic before warrenrty expired - "not a
problem" until warrenty expired then became downright VERY DANGEROUS.
Then after problem was apparantly fixed - cam & lifters = $$$ thousands the turbo would shut off & again VERY DANGEROUS going up inclines on highways.
VW (canada's) reply - "NO CAMPAIGN existing" which in VW land means go away - we dont care).
