Volkswagen Polo 2012: Gearbox failed

Asked by Ben

I have a 2012 VW Polo 1.6 TDI and the gearbox has failed. I have been advised that the linkages have ceased and require a gearbox rebuild. The car has travelled 94,000 km. Is this a common, or an abnormal fault?

It’s not a common fault. Given that your car has only done 94,000 km I would suggest you contact VW to see if they might come to the party with at least part of the cost of repairs as a gesture of good will.
