Usually, with factory recalls, they're retroactive. Go back with your sales receipt or call the 1-800 Volkswagen number to get reimbursed. If they find that you got the same procedure done before the recall, you are entitled by law to be reimbursed.
VW Canada is a little behind the 8ball on the coil packs recall. We received a letter over a month ago stating that there have been some issues with some coilpacks and that they may need replacing. No official recall yet up here. I hope they make it official. I need some peace of mind!
So frustrating. But i'm taking mine in now (well, in 2 weeks when Alexandria, VA VW has time for me) to have the remaining 2 old ones replaced before it gets cold again. Haven't received a letter, though. And it's great taking a road trip and having to worry about my 1 1/2 year-old car breaking down.
be happy you are getting a car... since im not 25 or older the dealer wouldnt give me a loaner... i was there for like 6 hours. good news is i test drove a 20 anniversary but then they offered my $12k for my car and all hopes went out the window
I scheduled an appointment 2.5 weeks in advance to have my coils replaced. I leftmy car there late the previous night. The next day they call me and tell me they didn't do anything to my car and that it will take 10-14 days to order the parts.
I'm having mine taken care of on tuesday along with my 15K mile servicing. I'll be dropping the car off that morning and it will stay at the dealership for the day. I hope I don't get a s#itbox loaner car.
