I have a 64 VW Polo on a 4 year PCP. The warranty expired 1 month ago and I am now told that the ECU needs to be replaced at a cost of £2000. What can I do?
Hi Ken. If the car has a full Volkswagen service history, you can try and push for some goodwill payment to cover the costs. I’d also scour any owners’ forums to see if anyone has had the same problem – it may be a known issue for that model.
If you don’t get any joy with either of those approaches, your wallet is probably going to be £2,000 lighter.
