My 2016 GTI recently blew a turbo because of the modifications that were preformed to it before I purchased the vehicle. The turbo was not covered under warranty, this does not bother me because I did not expect it to be once I learned the vehicle was modified. What does bother me, however, was the way McGrath lied to me about the reasoning behind a leaky water pump and a failing thermostat. I don't doubt that the water pump is leaking and the thermostat is going bad, but the reasoning they tried to give me was that because the turbo was getting too hot and that is what caused the water pump to leak. I then immediately called 2 other independent VW shops in the area and both of the shops said that the reasoning they gave me was a load of crap. They were trying to make me pay for a $1200 dollar service that should be covered under the manufactures warranty. I'll just continue to do my service at other VW shops and warranty work at Carousel Motors.
Avoid this service shop.
