My car broke down on me the other day and had to be recoverd to a garage. I took it to an independant specialst who diagnosed the problem as a failed fuel injector. I was told that it was a design flaw in that the two electrical terminals were too close together which eventaully causes a short and basically fries the injector and shorts the engine.
For background I have the S-Line (170) Quattro on an '07 plate.
My concern is that there are 3 other injectors which would all have the same 'design flaw' and also that the replacement injector will also be the same design. At Ł500 each plus around Ł150 labour this is not a cheap repair. This one will be done under warranty but it will be the last warranty job I get before it runs out.
Has anyone else had this problem?
