Summary of Complaint

I GOT MY CAR REPAIRED FOR THIS ISSUE AFTER SMELLING GAS LEAKAGE BEFORE VW RELEASED THE RELEVANT RECALL CAMPAIGN. I SENT VW ALL RECEIPT FOR REPAIR PAID BY MY POCKET MONEY, BUT VW REFUSED TO REIMBURSE FOR MY EXPENSE BECAUSE I GOT IT REPAIRED TOO EARLY. I DID ON 09/17/2014 BUT VW STATES THAT ONLY THE REPAIR WAS DONE BETWEEN 09/20/2016 AND 03/19/2018. THIS IS RIDICULOUS ANSWER. I AM HERE ATTACHING ALL THE RECEIPT AND THE LETTER FROM VW . CAR IS CURRENTLY IN MOTION AFTER REPAIR.

Summary of Complaint

VEHICLE WAS SMELLING LIKE GAS - THOUGHT IT WAS DUE TO RUNNING OVER DEBRIS BUT NO DAMAGE TO TANK FOUND IN INSPECTION. MECHANIC REMOVED TANK SHIELDS AND STRAPS AND FOUND THAT THE FUEL PUMP FLANGE WAS LEAKING DUE TO A CRACK AND NEEDED TO BE REPLACED ALONG WITH CONNECTOR SEAL. CAR OWNER HAS THE PART IF IT NEEDS TO BE SENT IN FOR REVIEW. DID RESEARCH AND NOTICED THAT 2007-2010 VW TOUAREG'S WERE RECALLED FOR THIS EXACT ISSUE (HTTPS://WWW.NHTSA.GOV/VEHICLE/2007/VOLKSWAGEN/TOUAREG/4%252520DR/AWD#RECALLS). WANT TO ENSURE THAT THIS RECALL SHOULD NOT BE WIDENED AS RESEARCH ON SEVERAL VW OWNER SITES HAVE NOTED THIS SAME ISSUE WITH MORE YEARS. OWNER CALLED VW TO PUT IN COMPLAINT BUT WAS TOLD THE CAR IS NOT UNDER RECALL AND THAT THERE IS NOTHING THEY COULD DO. MECHANIC BILL ATTACHED - PART IS IN OWNER'S POSSESSION FOR REVIEW IF NEEDED.
