Re: Should there be a seperate forum for coilpack problems??? (Helicon Twist)

I agree....You could have lot's of different forums just about MkIV issues, I just felt that since the Coilpack problem is so big, it might be deserving of it's own place for discussion. Would make it easier for people looking for coilpack info. The sticky we have now is getting huge.
Also it would make it easier to do searches for detailed questions

I agree also. A seperate forum dedicated to MKIV technical forums would be great. Then another one for mods and a third for general purposes?

Agree totally. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I really do think this needs to be a class action suit, only because VW isn't doing squat about it. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

that's because there aren't enough parts available to fix everyone's car yet. They're doing what they can, grow up.

Ever had a coilpack fail on you? Do you get in the car every day, thinking it could be the day that one of them fails in the car, hopefully not while you're on the highway at 70mph+. Of course not. Until you have dealt with this on a more personal level (all you have to worry about is oil leaks from another VW screw-up, right?) then you need to be the one growing up.

There seem to be other factors now. Like how the H coils might possibly be causing the new J coils to blow out and stuff like that. Also, if this will become a recall issue or not.

According to this article in the Boston Globe, VW doesn't plan a recall.

"Volkswagen does not see this as a recall issue, said Fouladpour, because recall issues are safety issues and, he said, this is not a safety issue."

I haven't had one fail on my car, but I've been in one where it failed. Yes, I'm sure it sucks, but what do you expect VW to do? Call the Coilpack Gods and ask for them to magically appear? There aren't enough to go around, they're being made, they'll exist soon.
Meanwhile, yes, I feel VW should make any payments where the car is in the shop and you're without it, as well as pay for the rental car.
But suing them? VW doesn't make the coilpacks, why don't you guys suy hitachi, or whoever screwed them up in the first place?

They don't even do THAT for some people.

They sat right there and said it's not a safety issue. That's like saying, "these morons were dumb enough to buy our cars, but now they're stuck with them, haha". Look how they handled the window reg problems. How many YEARS after the fact did they finally do something about it? The coilpacks are turning into the same thing.

Some people need to apply the adage about walking a mile in one's shoes before judging...
