There is a growing concern about the high pressure fuel pumps on VW's new clean diesel TDI vehicles. Customers are faced with a damned if you do, damned if you don't, situation. Vehicles are "randomly" suffering catastrophic fuel system failure that requires up to $10,000 in repairs. Multiple customers have had the fuel system fail more than one time.

It is unknown how many customers have been affected. By all accounts the % is low, but as more customers add more miles, we expect the count to climb.

This website is an attempt to document failures in a format that allows us to glean information quickly. Many reports come from users on forums, but they are appended to random threads, so finding them can be difficult.

If you've suffered from a HPFP failure, please make sure you report the problem with NHTSA at this page.
