So here is my dilemma. I have a 2009 Jetta Sportwagon TDI that until mile 97,447 had run really perfectly its entire life. The only thing I had to deal with, other than a leaky sunroof, was the P2015 which was easily remedied with the DieselGeek fix. At 97,477 I lost power and coasted the car to a stop, tried to start it again but no luck. Friends behind me saw a spray from the engine bay that ended up being diesel, so I figured the fuel system had depressurized. Free VW Roadside assistance got it to the local dealer. They claim the turbo failed, flooded the intake and cylinders, and they claim it trashed the entire engine. Total repair bill by their estimate is $8907. The sales manager said he'd help me out, but that ended up offering me "maybe $500" for the car and a deal on a new or used VW. Shocking I know. I am likely going to tow it up to the North side of Houston to Das Autohaus to have them take a look. Their off the cuff "worst case" everything needs to be replaced quote is $9800, but I suspect it will be less than what the dealer quoted. Thanks to the whole diesel scandal, the KBB value of the car is about $5600. So I am torn. I really don't like the idea of abandoning the car when the rest of it seems good, but paying almost 50% OVER the value of the car to get it out on the road again hurts, even with a 1 year engine warranty. So, if this happened to your TDI, what would you do?
