    (Why would a part NOT be replaced under warranty.)
    Maybe not everyone can afford 110 dollars per hour from the dealer shop so they take it to a shop were the mechanics are not properly informed on proper procedure, not that I am telling their doing a bad thing, after all volkswagen was supposed to be the “peoples” car.

    Also i asked if you came across a sitaution were a particular replcement part you have ever installed was made/manufactured incorrectly (in email) I apologize because I did not think about the sponsor you had on the show, and how they would associate that to themselves worrying about negative associations of others.

    When it comes to buying a certified pre-owned I would value the advice of honest mechanic over that, anyone could stamp a sticker saying certified pre owned.

    I am not intentionally being negative towards vw, so far their cars seem to be sensible but fun and economical, but of course for any company the goal is profit so they will change based on the WANTS of their buyers.
