Dealer trust

Answered by CarsGuide 25 Jul 2012

I'm not surprised the dealer won't budge; he doesn't want to be held responsible for giving poor advice if something happens as a result of missing or extending the service intervals. I would take the same approach and say that you should do the service as they suggest.

Ask Smithy Xtra VW tyres scalloped

Answered by CarsGuide 14 Sep 2010

The mileage you’ve had from the tyres is about average for a front-wheel drive car of that type, so I would doubt you’ve got any claim against VW. Tyres are not covered by the warranty, by VW, or any other carmaker.

Peeling paint on VW Jetta

Answered by CarsGuide 5 Aug 2010

From what you say it does appear that it's a problem with the painting and not the result of a stone chip. Have it checked by the VW rep and make a claim against the warranty. If the rep rejects it you could go direct to VW and present your case directly. If you have no joy there you could consult a paint specialist for an independent appraisal, but as that would likely cost more than the repair you would be better off it have the dealer repair it.

Sneaky speedo

Answered by CarsGuide 26 Dec 2008

I DON'T subscribe to the conspiracy theory, I believe it's a result of the conservative approach of car companies to making sure the speedos don't understate the actual speed and get owners into trouble with the police. There are many tolerances that accumulate in a car that can throw out things like speedo readings.
