I HAVE HAD TO PAY TO HAVE THE ENGINE ON MY VW DECARBONIZED AT 40,000 MILES AFTER A LENGTHY TOW, AND NOW IT HAD TO BE TOWED AGAIN AND NEEDS TO BE DECARBONIZED AGAIN AT ONLY 60,000 MILES. I WAS TOLD BY A SERVICE TECHNICIAN ABOUT 1 YEAR AGO THAT VW HAD ISSUED A NOTICE TO DEALERS TO PAY FOR DECARBONIZING THE ENGINES UP TO 80,000 MILES. THE SERVICE MANAGER DENIES THIS NOTICE WAS EVER ISSUED. THIS TYPE OF COSTLY AND POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS PROBLEM, ( MY WIFE WAS STRANDED ON THE SHOULDER OF A BUSY FREEWAY IN SUBZERO TEMPERATURES) NEEDS TO BE CORRECTED.
