Golf 7 1.4?TSI Block Problems

Post by yusheem » Thu Jun 13, 2019 10:47 am

Good Morning.
I have a golf 7 1.4TSI. the car used a lot of oil so VW did an oil consumption test and it failed. as i have an extended warranty with hollard i took the car to an RMI approved workshop. they stripped the engine and found the 3rd and 4th pistons are fried and the block id worn out. we cannot find a second hand block as they are worn out also.
please could someone help us with a repair for my car.
Thanks

Where are you based? And are you looking at repairing privately or through your extended warranty?

Does the extended warranty cover the engine damage?
If yes, they must pay up and get you a new block/engine. Not second hand, new.

The Extended Warranty only covers engine damage up to R20000. Brand New Engine +-R120000.
