    Thumbs up Warranty Extention,Intake Camshaft,Camshaft Follower & High Pressure Fuel Pump

    I own a 2006 GTI and just received a letter from VW saying that they are extending the factory warranty on certain 2006 and 2007 TFSI Engines to 10 years or 120,000 miles from the original warranty start date on the intake camshaft, camshaft follower and high pressure fuel pump. The warranty is fully transferable to subsequent owners. This is in response to all the incidences of premature wear of camshaft followers on those engines. This is great because now VW will pick up the tab if you have to replace your Intake camshaft, Camshaft follower or High Pressure fuel pump. I got a notification because I'm the original owner and apparently my car is one of the effected ones. (although I have had no problem related to that) But, if you do own one with an effected engine and have not been notified you will still be covered if you have an issue. Anyone that thinks they might be covered under this warranty extension can call a VW dealer and have them check your VIN number to see if your car is included.

    You got your motor flap covered under drivetrain or bumper-to-bumper warranty?

    I know about it, I wouldn't get it. Waste. Take It to the dealer with that in there and see how they shut down your warranty after it punches through.

    Just stay with the stocker. More meat means more mass between the plunger and cam lobe. It may eff up yer fuel delivery unless the pump needs to be shimmed too? God forbid the metal it's made of is even harder than the stocker follower and wears yer lobe anyway...
    I'd rather just keep throwing stockers in there so long as I can still get them.

    I just got my cam follower and fuel pump replaced under the recall warranty extension. I originally went into the dealership after my engine was f*cking up after I got my ECU APR tuned. As soon as I brought it in, they told me I was covered under the recall warranty. I got the letter in the mail about a week later. Car rides so much better now.

    Update....car has been in the shop since August 3rd waiting for the high pressure fuel pump to be MADE in Germany. Now these a**holes tell me that it is being shipped over and wont be here until the end of the month. Have the ever heard of planes?? The battle with corporate is now on. Not a good start to my first VW.

    My 2007 DSG is in Lindsay VW now and I was told it needed new camshaft, followers and fuel pump.
    Originally took it in for the transmission slipping and not up shifting.
    So even though the new parts are going to be put in under the VW extended warranty, What about all the metal shavings from the worn parts flowing through the rest of the engine?
    When the oil circulates around the cam, followers... where does it go? Straight to the filter to filter out the wear causing shavings or through the rest of the engine and turbo causing excessive wear?
    Should I trade or sell the car when I get it back?
    Or keep it and do stage 1 or 2 mods? How would this affect my warranty if any?
    Does VW replacing the cam, followers and fuel pump noticeably increase performance?
    My transmission was replaced in 2009 due to hitting a drive shaft in the HWY.
    What else should I know?
    Thank you.

    You should be able to go to VW's website and look up any recalls using your VIN number.

    Did you run your VIN through the recall checker on VW's website?
