Question about 2003 Volkswagen Beetle TDI
I am on the third starter for my 2003 beetle. Before each starter was ruined there was a very distinctive grinding noise that sounded as if gears were grinding or as if the starter was grinding. I took it to the dealershp the service department was not able to make the car make the noise. Finally, the noise became consistant, the starter went out and there was a burning smell afterwards. The starter had a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty...I'm at 11 months and 14,000 miles and very peeved.
The dealership is going to collect on the repair weather it is from you or vw. they always want to fix the concerns that you have but unless they are able to duplicate your concern they cannot correct your issue. Would you really want them be dishonest and just guess what your problem is or would you rather they fix it.
