fuel pump failure
By Steelyeyed on


2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)


While still under warranty, the HPFP failed and the whole fuel system has to be replaced as a result. AND VW will not pay for repairs which are $10k. VW developed a HPFP which is susceptible to lack of lubrication using the ULSF which is required by law, and it comes apart after 25k miles. VW blames it on bad fuel, but what reasonable person buys a car that one has to test the fuel on fill up? The Siemens pump is especially vulnerable and you should insist on the Bosch fuel pump.

Best Features

Do not buy this car! It is not ready for the market as yet. the repairs are the same as the cost of 120000 miles of fuel.

Worst Features

re-engineer to operate for long mileage and adequate lubricity. AND, stand behind your product and pay for repairs.
