True, but at what point does this end? Plus sucks that the damn dealership has no loaners and it may need to be left over the weekend for a second time within 6 months for the same damn reason!! Unacceptable for a car that has 11,200 miles on it that I bought new and have babied and garage kept since day 1 with no mods to speak of. Its only been 1600 miles on pump 2. I mean WTF??? BUT I still love my car, just frustrated that a water pump has this much control over if you feel comfortable or not on the road!

Random post on an old thread but I've had 3 Waterpumps replaced on my 2014 GTI. First one at 8k second one at 27k and for both of those I was not tuned. Just had intake and minor bolt ons. I got stage 2 at 28k and my third water pump crapped out at 35k. And it's weird to say that because I know of two guys well past 50k on the original waterpump one being K04 and one with stage 2 never had any issues.

Does the recall not cover you? Unless you already had the recall done.
