Is it possible to get a vw dealership to correct inproperly factory installed oil rings on my 2001 jetta-excessive oil consumption

Asked by Jun 28, 2014 at 02:44 PM about the 2001 Volkswagen Jetta GL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've read recently about the vw jetta (2001 2.0cc), that the excessive oil consumption is caused by the improper factory installation of the oil rings. Apparently the oil rings were installed upside down. VW should correct the problem at no cost to the customer.
