Has anyone replaced a starter? Car quit and had to get towed. Dealer told us the starter was bad. They pulled the engine and transmission to replace the starter! Warranty went out this summer and first it was the drive shaft @ $1500 and now the starter for $1300. WHAT NEXT?

Does anyone know if you really have to pull the engine and trans to replace a starter on a Treg?

Car back in the shop 10 days later for AC not working. Can't wait to see the bill for this.

Ouch!!! One thing that seems to be a pre-requisite for owning a Touareg is a Warranty - Extended or otherwise...(Finding that out at the moment)

Couldn't advise on the engine out, Someone on here will be able to...

Had alternator replaced which was an engine out job too....... Thank goodness for extended warranty. 5th year extension barely covers anything tho, and only up to ?1k replacement value on any break fix.
