You're kidding, the car was pulling so they replaced the steering wheel? Are you sure they didn't just redo the steering alignment? What seal did they replace? What does the dealer receipt say? What's the difference with the rns 510i vs. the regular 510?

1.Replace seal, what seal? Details would help.

2. What does "realing" steering wheel mean?
2. my guess is "re-align." Of course that would have no effect on pulling if the front end needs alignment.

This is a 2010 jetta sportwagen tdi. With autotransmission, touch screen navi and media device for ipod . Bought the car in TX and drove it back to NY. I saw'' check engine light'' inTN and stopped at a dealer in Knoxwille. The computer was showing in german ''nicht gefunden'' which means ''not found''. The dealer reset. I saw ''check light'' after 100 miles. In NY dealer said the same thing ''found nothing''

It sounds like an o2 sensor problem so they found an exhaust leak.
If it's fixed now just wait to see if it comes back. Hopefully this is all the problems you will see assuming that they really did fix the problem.

At this time dealer also updated navi system and performed flash of rns510 as per tsb 91-09-28 because i was not getting directions without the disk. It worked for 2 days and again the same problem. This time the dealer was instucted by the tech line to replace radio unit parts and since then it is working good. I had problem with rear armrest it wasnt pulling down and dealer replaced parts.Since then working good. At around 4400miles the steering wheel was tilting to the right when driving straight road.The dealer REALIGNED steering wheel. Since then working good.

Yes, new cars have problems all the time. Even Honda and Toyotas regularly have problems ;) The real issue is if the dealer does a good job fixing it for you.

No, if the car is running fine when you sell it why would it? If you've had a recorded accident it would. The car's condition and the market determine the value of the car.
