My new TDI has just 16k miles and the ECM failed, the car just died a few times, dealer did nothing but to charge the batter, dealer is trying to protect VW here and disclosing how on earth an ECM failed that soon! Now it wont even start, dealer is replacing the ECM. I bet its due to some turbo failure or a deisel engine issues. The new TDI is horribly unreliable, 3 months back I had ASR issue, many fuses died and all of a sudden the ECM failed. Anyinsights on this? Please?
