My engine Blew...VW wouldn't help!

2004 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


I loved driving my car until one day my
engine destroyed itself. The
manufactureer sugests that normal oil
should be fine a a turbo engine. But I
PAINFULLY found out that synthetic oil
is the only oil that is supposed to be
used in a turbo car. The normal becomes
so thick that is is as hard as tar and
is causes blockages! this cause the
engine to stop AFTER it has broken the
pistons and destroyed the valves! I
know 4 people who this has happened too!
