Volkswagen Golf 2009 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Golf here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Will Volkswagen '09 Golf under warranty?
Your car is now nine years old, which makes it difficult to claim on VW, but it has only done 70,000 km, so that’s in your favour. If a VW dealer had been servicing it I would attempt to convince VW to cover at least part of the cost of the replacement. Otherwise I think you will find it hard to get VW to cough up.
What's a good green car to buy?
Your best option would be the 1.4-litre turbo manual in the Mk 6. It’s more fuel-efficient than the base 1.6-litre engine in the Mark 5, and being the newer model there are less likely to be any issues with getting spares for it.
Golf compression problems
Yes. It is a well-documented problem with the 1.4-litre dual-charge engine; one that VW was fixing when it first cropped up a year or two ago. Your car is out of warranty so they might be reluctant to help you, but it's worth a try.
VW Golf compression problems
Have your dealer contact VW first and have them register a request for a goodwill claim to cover the repairs to the engine. It's a common problem with the 1.4-litre twin-charge engine and the company should at least cover part of the repair costs. If your claim is rejected, then go directly to VW to pursue it further. You will have a battle to get any compensation, so be prepared for rejection.
