Oh, I don't BELIEVE this shit...  
For those of you who were on my flist last year, you remember the horrid problems I had with the assholes that are Volkswagen.  Those not familiar with it, reference THIS.


We got a letter in the mail stating that VW is now extending their warranties on all the transmissions and valves.  These would be the same that cost me $6K last year, a large part of what has made me broke this year and a reason why I wasn't able to put $5K towards my student loans.

We're getting a lawyer.  Well, I don't think we need to 'get' one - we know the city prosecutor, which would strike fear into the hearts of that bastardly dealership more than just some everyday lawyer.  I just know they will not refund us the money for the shit we did last year on the first try.  I wouldn't push this so much, but it's not like, a hundred bucks.  It's $6K, not too mention the insane amount of emotional bullshit we went through last year.  It was VERY bad.

Ugh! Companies. Not that this is on the same level but I had to deal with Dell and their bullshit. I bought a brand new laptop $1200 out of my pocket after saving for it. Within the first 5 months they had to replace almost every part on it. After dealing with customer services over and over and not getting anywhere, I finally I email bombed every corporate and head persons email that I could find. I got a call the next day telling me that they were going to replace my laptop. They sent me a different model with the same specks that I had ordered on my other one. So far so good but my warranty ran out last month so I am waiting for something to god bad!

I hope you get your money back! *hugs*

Ugh, your story sounds just like mine. That's terrible. It's so weird because there are so many companies that work to satisfy their customers, especially in this economic climate. Makes them all look bad.

6,000 in warranties? That seems ridiculous to me. I've never heard of a warranty that cost that much. But granted I only drive a chevy but still....

No, it wasn't the warranty that cost that much. It was $6K to replace the part that wasn't covered under the warranty. Now they sent out a thing saying that they have decided to cover all the part. It was the transmission and surrounding valves - aka: the heart and soul of the car. Well, maybe not the heart. That's more the engine.
