Maybe what WD is saying is for every VW that has a warranty claim 1 out of 52 of those claims is related to an engine problem.
Not that one of every 52 VW engines has a problem. Two totally different things!!
Plus, Warranty Direct is more involved with autos that have some mileage on them, and are already out of any factory warranty.
+2^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^it is engine problems not failures.
VW is very well known for check engine lights demanding a trip to the dealer..........especially on some clean diesel models...........same is true for Mercedes and their clean diesel, I have one........been there......several times.
