In this winters severe weather the snow caught the right front fender wheel well molding and half of it was lost. The cost to replace it is $569 plus labor.
My body shop noted a very similar molding in a Honda CRV costs $45. VW is taking unfair advantage of the consumer. My vehicle is a 2013 VW Touareg Sport. I love my car and we have owned VW or Audis for 35 years.
If this is how VW gouges me on replacement parts, I will no longer be a consumer. I am a senior and with tax and labor the overall cost with the dealer will be well over $700 for a 3 ft piece of plastic m9lding.
I will publicize my frustration to consumer advocates if they do not offer a reasonable cost for this $40 part. Call me outraged!!!!
