VW pulls plug on helping with £2,500 repair bill

Our £40,000 Passat GTE completely died just outside its three-year warranty

Our VW Passat GTE – a plug-in electric hybrid – completely died a few months ago. Because it is just outside its three-year warranty, VW wants to charge me more than £2,500 to fix it.

The car refused to turn on and, instead, displayed a “hybrid system error”. My breakdown firm took it to my local dealership . They thought they’d fixed it and charged me several hundred pounds.
