two bent axles and apparently oil leaking out of the crankcase. The leak should be warranty right?

He said hard launching can do it. Could be from going over a curb 3yrs ago and just got gradually worse?

Re: here comes an expensive repair bill... (tayk47)

Should be under warranty, I was leaking oil at the bottom of the trans, replaced under warranty.

the warranty company is sending an inspector. Apparently last time I was in a service guy told them I had mods...

UPDATE:<p>They only replaced one axle, $800...<p>good news tho, the leaking cam seals were replaced under warranty and they replaced my entire oil catch box as a recall. So I got that going for me <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
