  1. VW was covering higher mileage vehicles before this announcement. At least there is a definition of the policy now. Looks like owning a TDI with over 120,000 miles is a risky affair due to the cost of repair. This should also negatively affect resale of higher mileage cars too. It would benefit VW to come up with a more fail-safe fuel system design. If the pump fails, it doesn't create as much collateral damage. Replace the pump, and maybe the injectors and your done. Do you think placing a filter on the fuel return line would minimize the damage?

  2. I have 164,000 miles and I'm second owner. Fudgeeeeee although, I don't know if the fuel guard is installed?

    I picked up a 2010 Jetta TDI in April and the first day I had it I took it to VW to fix all my recalls.

    I opted out of the fueling guard swap because around SC some of the pumps still use larger nozzle around here. So I guess I'm screwed if my fuel pump decides to explode

    Got that notice in the mail yesterday for the 2012 Jetta. Why is my 2023 Golf not covered? Did the design change?
