Will Volkswagen replace the injectors on my Volkswagen Caddy after the emissions fix?

I've only had my 2010 Volkswagen Caddy Maxi for a month and the fuel injector has gone. The van has only done 77,000 miles. I read somewhere that Volkswagen were replacing for free due to a recall. As I've only had this for a month, I don't really know that much about the big emissions scandal and recall. However, I've done some research and can see that the Caddy seems to have a common problem with fuel injectors. Should I approach Volkswagen?

Did you buy the van from a dealer? If so, I’d recommend taking it back and asking them to replace the injectors or give you a full refund as the dealer is responsible for any problems that develops up to six months from the date of sale. Explained here: www.honestjohn.co.uk/faq/consumer-rights/

You could try Volkswagen, although I have heard of fuel injectors failing at 80,000 miles. But I’ve yet to hear of dealers replacing them for free due to the emissions update.
