My Turbo Diesel is a great little car as most of you know that own one.
I have been reading a lot of reports from ya'll and find it very funny that the Local dealers are taking such advantage of you.
$107.oo for a headlight replacement is really taking advantage of you. It litterly takes about 10 minutes to change a headlight bulb. All you need a screwdriver and a finger to change it. The turbo diesel is the hardest and it still takes about 10 minutes. Get a manuel, read it and do not be bent over by the dealer.. Whom ever it was that was taken advantage of I would go back to the dealer and ask why when it is so simple and quick to change.
I don't know why a local oil change shop will not change the oil. It is not different than any oil change, just make sure they use an oil with the proper CF rating, you can use synthic or standard oil but it must be for a diesel. Mobil 1 now have a CF rating. Again if you are able get the manuel and use it. Working on any car is half the fun of having it.
In closing don't throw all the beetle out with the bath water just because a few have problems and don't be afraid if contacting the
Regional Rep for VW and get in his or her case when you have a problem with a dealer. Ask for service reports and recalls from the dealer, if they would give them to you speak with the Regional Rep,
hold their feet to the fire and enjoy a great little fun car.
