Hello Folks,

Would like to say great site/forum!

I am unfortunatley for the first time at 11,600 miles and suffering from outer tyre wear on my 14month old 2.5tdi.

From reading similar problems with other Touareg's I have contacted my dealership in Aberdeen via e-mail last week who then advised me of the VW Policy of 12 months old or under 12,000 miles they would look in to the matter free of charge. I am due to take the car in tomorrow 19.06.06 and will inform you all of how I get on. Fingers Crossed

Is that specialist Motors that your going to.

I would ask them to make sure you have a current software update that should rule out any issues also ask for a complete laser alignement as for tyre I doubt if VW will help but don't worry to much you can get a decent tyre like the Hankoks which are in fact better than what was supllied by VW and you should see the better side of 25k for wear.

As long as you have not felt any judder then no mechanical part will require to be replaced.
