  • Body/Paint Warranty Friendly Dealer

    I have some crusty rusty spots on my A4. Worst in particular is the corner of my front driver door is missing. I brought the car to my closest dealer a few weeks back and they told me the rust spots need to be complete rust through holes for them to consider it (this is before I realized the rust on my door was actually a whole corner missing). I want to take it back there and point out the door but I'm afraid they will only want to fix the door and not all of the bits.

    Has anybody had any good luck with a friendly dealership for the body/paint warranty? I want to get this car all cleaned up. Thanks in advance.

      I took the passat in to vyletel and they took care of it. Both front fenders were slightly rusted and the paint was bubbly. They took pictures and sent it to vwoa and called me about a week later saying the fenders are painted and ready to go on

            Where is that at? I'm willing to drive away from my local dealer for the best chance of getting approved.

                Vyletel is VW only, so I doubt they'll be able to assist with an A4.

                    Update. Went back a few weeks ago. Pointed out that a whole small corner of the door was missing. Got him to take photos of the door plus all the other surface Rusty bits.. He sent the photos in and I got nice and rejected so that's lame but at least I tried.
