 VW TDI FUEL GAUGE FAULTY

I know some of you have TDI's...lately, ALOT of "little" plastic stuff (fuel door latch, trunk latch, cup holders, etc." have been breaking lately, and the dealer doesn't believe in Vaseline, if you know what I mean...now my fuel gauge reads FULL constantly...if only it were true...any ideas? (2000 Jetta TDI)

Sorry for your troubles, Blue. We havn't had too much plastic breakage yet (2001 TDI Jetta, 50K miles) but I do agree some of the plastic pieces seem a bit on the chincy side of the quality curve. The fuel door was replaced under warranty, but the drivers inside door handle is now peeling and the warranty is gone, so I guess it will be time to pay up there. Our cup holder is hanging in there with surprisingly no breakage yet. (I thought it would be the first thing to go!)

Otherwise the 50MPG is savings enough to pay for some minor plastic issues in my oppinion.

My wife drives a TDI beetle. The only problem she has had was after letting the fuel get low, the guage read empty with the light on, even when filled. This was fixed under warranty, and no other problems to speak of. Fantastic little engine.
