我的 vw touareg 2017 启动就巨大噪音.
开出去不到50米就趴窝了(家门口, 都在坡上, 根本没水).
寻着噪音打开filter box, 看到里面好多水.
车还在 factory warranty.
factory warranty 不管. 说是我的责任. 费用 1600 左右.
查了一下. 这个是 vw touareg 2014 到 2017 款的 drain valve defect .
2018 年已经有 class action lawsuit.
vw china 有 recall , 但是 vw 北美没管.
The drain valves in the air intake allegedly don't allow water to drain
properly from the engine compartment, causing water to collect in the bottom
of the Touaregs’ air boxes and damaging the air filters.
But the engines will die once the water enters the engines, something the
plaintiffs claim VW has known about since the beginning of 2018. That claim
is based on a Chinese recall of 33,142 Touaregs manufactured between
December 2014 and November 2017.
The lawsuit alleges the Chinese General Administration of Quality
Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine found the defective drain valves,
causing Volkswagen to say, “We are sincerely regretful that the faulty
drain valves in the Touareg SUVs have caused inconvenience to our Chinese
Court documents claim the Chinese recall is VW's admission that it knows
about the defective drain valves but still hasn't warned Touareg drivers
their SUVs could fail from clogged drains and waterlogged air filters.
In addition, the SUVs are allegedly worth less than they should be because
of the drain valves and the automaker knows it is saving money by not
ordering a recall to protect the engines.
The VW Touareg drain valve lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for
the District of New Jersey - Jodi Crandell and Juan Ontiveros, et al., v.
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc, et al.
Clogged Drains and Wet Air Filters Appear to be Shutting Down Touareg
