I have a four-year-old VW, which i bought brand new. It is now out of warranty after three years. Yesterday when driving the car, it came up with a warning to stop the vehicle. I had stopped the vehicle and had organised for the vehicle to towed away to a licensed mechanic who checked the car.
I was told today that the motorhead is cracked and has leaked water into the engine, causing the engine to overheat. The mechanic has said to me that the repair would be approx. 5K for a new repair properly.
The car has had a full-service history and well looked after. Considering its age do i have the ability to get VW to fix the issue outside of warranty I bought the car for over 50K. Please help. What do I do?
