VW dieselgate jetta wagons - any experience?

So the reason I went out on a limb and bought this car was because all those issues with fuel system you noted, Barry, are covered under the 11.5yr/126K (of which I have like 6yrs/90K) dieselgate warranty. Also covers the turbo and the larger moving parts of the engine. That combined with the pricing and performance made this a stand out deal for me.

A magnet won't work. The hpfp is a coated aluminum part. There are people that installed high pressure sintered filters on the return lines to contain debris. Probably makes this a $3k repair vs. $7k. The pump alone is $2k from memory.

I'd drive the car and not worry until the warranty is up.

Having the extended "diesel gate" warranty, is a big plus! I won't be too worried about another fuel pump self destructing for quite a few miles.
Just about everything fuel and emissions related is covered. I think the only thing missing is the A/C and heater. (well, and maybe the bottom end)
