The numbers are pretty low on HPFP failures, so I would expect that most dealers haven't dealt with one.
I agree - the numbers appear to be very low.

Because this is such a catrosophic failure, I really think that VW needs to have their eyes on it...
I agree - I wonder if there is some difference in the European fuel make-up (like 5% or 10% bio-Diesel mandated). But I also think that the metal contamination should be preventable. More filters? :confused:

Europe does have different standards, for both Dino and BioDiesel, but I don't know if there's a mandate for a bio blend.

In Germany, 5.25% percent BioDiesel was mandated in 2009, and the percentage should grow to 6.25% this year (and then stay there). Up to 7% is allowed in regular Diesel fuel.

Just an update/comment on occurance levels. My service advisior told me recently that he just saw his second failure on a 2010 JSW. This time, based on my exprience and what I had shared with him, the delearship was better prepared to resolve the issue...

But I will say this, my dealer did an outstanding job taking care of me. And no, thats not a plug for VWoA. But a plug for my dealer...
