Re: 97' jetta glx..Blown Head Gasket! Is this covered under any warrenty??? (Eric M)

Are you the original purchaser of the car?
Does the car have less than 100k miles on it? (Assuming '97 still had 10yr/100k)
Is your engine/transmission stock? (ie: no mods)
If you answer yes, yes, yes ... I think that you can get this fixed free of charge.
Depending on what mods you have on the engine... a dealership may claim the warranty has been voided.

VW's in the U.S. have had 10yr/100,000mi powertrain warrenty since '94.

looks like you better start pulling off all your engine mods and what not...and put the stock stuff back in...chip, intake, exhuast, cams and what no if you have any of it...good luck

my 92 came with the 10/100k
it should be covered under warranty and whoever is quoting you $3500 for a head gasket should be shot.
