  1. Help with AdBlue and what to do

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hi all, I've been following this forum for some time now as I've considered getting a Touareg TDI for towing abilities and the extended warranty and have had numerous VWs and Audis with good success in the past. Purchased a '12 Touareg TDI back in March with 70K miles on it and wow did I not...
  2. Warranty worth it for 2016 toureg...

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hello All, I am new to the vw family. I just bought a 2016 vw touareg today and I have a few questions about the warranty. So the price was a pretty heft at 6500 for four years and I am now starting to think it was not worth it since doing more research has shown that people have very little...
  3. Main Seal Leak/Rear Diff Output Flange Leak Warranty Issues

    Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Took my 2012 TDI into an indy VW/Audi shop here in Austin, Texas for a post buy inspection a few months after purchasing the vehicle. They found a leak in the rear main seal as well as seepage in the rear differential output flange. After a quick search I realized both of these items were...
  4. AWN Warranties

    Australia & New Zealand
    I am thinking of supplementing the 3 month mandatory dealer warranty (Australia) with 3rd party coverage. The dealer has provided a brochure on the AWN warranties, and to my novice eyes it look OK. Obviously it's what is NOT covered that is the big question. Does anyone have any experience...
  5. Check engine light

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Check engine light came on, took it to Auto zone. They told me no code threw at first but then were able to give me this code P2080 - Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor Circuit Range/Performance Bank 1 Sensor 1. This is a 2012 Touareg TDI, does anyone know if this is covered under the extended warranty?

    Hey can anyone tell what is happening here in the picture? There are like 3 of these on each side of the engine and they all appear to be leaking from the fuel injector seal area on each. It's all wet with something.
  7. Intake Boot on Turbo leaking

    New Member Introductions
    New to the group. I am looking at a 2012 TDI, which has a 4/48 VW Emissions warranty. Says it covers the turbo, and upon pre-purchase inspection, the mech said it has a "Turbo boot" oil leak at the intake. Would this be covered? Cost to fix if not? Thanks so much. Everything else is good on...
  8. MY10 Roof "ribs" peeling?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Just noticed this yesterday on my 2010 model. The leading edge on all the ribs are chipping, and there are a few bubbles also. 70k miles, second owner - is this something I should take up with VW? The pieces appear to be painted, which is surprising given that the actual roof rails are...
  9. Touareg extra extended warranty?

    Drivers Lounge
    I have a 2008 T2, V8 with air suspension and my VW extended warranty (7 years, 100k miles) expires at the end of the year. I have about 70k miles on it. Question: is there an extended warranty out there that would cover everything until I hit 100k or 120k miles? If not, is there any way to...
  10. Ad Blue Heater Repair Covered By Volkswagen

    General Maintenance & Repair
    So drove to Florida from Ottawa Canada in my 2011 6cyl. TDI with 115,000 km (roughly 70k miles or so), and engine light comes on. Next day dropped it off at Dave Mauss Volkswagen in Orlando to be told it's the Ad Blue heater, crap! Read all about this issue on this great site and now it's my...
  11. Extended warranty options for MY10 TDI - advise appreciated.

    General Maintenance & Repair
    MY10 with just under 60k on the clock. It has air suspension, nav, and all the toys - and it's a TDI - so there's always the looming concern about HPFP issues. Anyhow, VW offers a warranty via Fidelity. There are five tiers - powertrain, silver, gold, gold + and platinum. From looking at it...

    :(For anyone trying to decide on a Touareg TDI. Here is our 11 month experience putting on 25K drives thru 9 States and 4 Provinces. We loved the vehicle and the all that it has to offer but have not been able to drive it for about 1 month of the first 11 so far because of these failures. We...
  13. Certified Pre Owned Brakes Quality

    Drivers Lounge
    I have a 2008 v6 treg and today, my dealer told me that my front brakes are 90% used and rear 70% and of course I need to change them. The only problem I have is that I bought this treg 12 months ago, certified, and made less than 12000miles (20000km). The dealer that sold me the treg did not...

  16. Driveshaft Bearing Warranty Question

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I drive a 2008 V6 Treg and the driveshaft bearing gave out on me unexpectedly on the freeway yesterday. From these forums I've learned that this is very typical for the V6 anytime after 60,000 miles, but mine hasn't even hit 40,000. The worst part of it is, my car is no longer under warranty as...

    Hey, so my 09 V6 TReg will be reaching the 30k mile mark soon (like next week!). I'm wondering what I can do to maximize the value of my existing warranty. I just had my 30k check up maintenance thinger. Ideally, I'd like to get a new set of tires (dreaming I know!) but what do you guys...
