VW Owners Take Note (Again):
More Fixes for Volkswagen, Audi
The problem stems from a faulty component within the DSG's Mechatronic unit, which causes "transmission performance issues under certain driving conditions," according to the release. As part of the customer service program, parts supplies are being increased to meet repair demand. Fixes will be done at no cost to owners, who will be contacted to schedule repair appointments; owners who have already paid to have the problem resolved will be reimbursed. The company's New Vehicle Limited Warranty will also be extended to cover the affected transmissions -- the extended warranty is for 10 years/100,000 miles and is transferable to subsequent owners.
If you have any questions, contact the VW Loyalty Center at 1-800-444-8982, or the Audi Customer Relations Campaign Help Line at 1-800-253-2834.
