Cam Follower Warranty Extension

Good news everybody! VW of America has decided to extend the cam follower, high pressure fuel pump, and intake camshaft warranty to 120,000 miles or 10 years. I received a letter in the mail. It took a while but VW finally did the right thing.

I’ll load the letter once I get it scanned. documents added below

Here are a few links related to the cam follower problem:

    • I’ve added a quick phone scan of the letter, I hope you can use it in the meantime.

  1. My 2007 VW Passat Wagon 2.0T is currently in the shop and the mechanic just informed me that my high pressure fuel pump needs to be replaced, roughly $1,500. Do you think the Warranty Extension mentioned above would cover this? I probably sound ignorant…but I am not savvy on all the VW vehicle types to know if my Passat is covered. I do know I am grumpy over this estimate….help!

    • Hey there, you should be covered under that extended warranty. How many miles do you have on the Passat? As far as I know, the extension covers the engine and is not limited to particular body styles.

      Is this an independent mechanic or a dealership?
