Can't blame anybody. Unfortunately this is another doozy in the modern VW lineup with the water pump, timing chain, etc. No one wants to hold these cars for more than 3-5 years because that's when...

I know for sure there's one on the passenger side because it was in my way when I tried to unclog the sunroof drains. Not to mention the housing bracket for it was completely rusted apart.

EA888 engines of all gens guzzle oil. If she can't be bothered to check the oil after being asked 100 times, she surely won't check it at every fill up. Fuck that idea.
