Volkswagen Update

Well I got good news and bad news on my car. Volkswagen agreed to pay for the new transmission but are requiring that I pay for the new clutch. This is kind of odd because the clutch was destroyed by the failed transmission. Still, it reduces my bill from $3600 to about $900.

I do appreciate that they were willing to help me out on this. Technically, they have no legal responsibility to do so. On the other hand, it is very worrisome that, from my experience, a Volkswagen tranny is only good for about 30,000 miles.

I love this car for a lot of reasons. I think the human engineering is very well done. I’m a little worried about the technical engineering now, though.

Does Volkswagen suck? I guess I’d have to say….kinda.
