Fuel Injector design flaw
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 £500 each plus around £150 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?
Its all here for you.....
