My van has suffered to faulty injectors. Can I expect compensation from the manufacturer?

An injector in my 2014 Volkswagen Caddy (18,000 miles) has been replaced. There's now another one showing faulty. Is there any recall or compensation from Volkswagen?

This generation of Volkswagen Caddy is well known for problems with its fuel injectors. Buy direct from Volkswagen and you’ll be looking at a bill anywhere from £2000-£3000 to replace them all. It’s a false economy replacing a single one. Aftermarket, original equipment injectors are available and will save you about a third over official parts. It's unlikely you'll get any help from VW. My advice would be to find a trust worthy Volkswagen van specialist. Our Good Garage Guide should be able to help you with this: good-garage-guide.honestjohn.co.uk
