    Even if it had been a genuine pump it would not have been covered under warranty as it is 2 years. It would be interesting to know the make of the pump though, just out of curiosity.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    That's a real PITA, shouldn't be happening that a 9 year old car is BER due to a water pump failure. You're probably making the right call though, repair costs will be

    Almost every car is now a scraper if it suffers a catastrophic failure at about 10 years old, the repair costs are so high that the numbers don't make sense. We better get used to it though, when a Passat GTE is nine years old its battery warranty will have long expired and a new battery is 6865.52 plus installation and coding so it simply isn't going to happen which is really environmentally friendly isn't it? A recent study concluded that to pay back it's manufacturing CO2, a typical hybrid needs to last 17 years WITHOUT a battery change and that is not going to happen.

    very true, yet we are being pushed ever further towards the electric car utopia.

    We were pushed down this path with Diesel and look at the disaster that has been, literally millions of premature deaths worldwide. No were are being coaxed into electric self driving cars, from what I have read Uber are starting to wag a finger at the monitor driver in the crash that killed a pedestrian/cyclist. I also read that autonomous cars will require us to hold the wheel and be poised on the pedals, so what is the point?

    You have a very good point here.

    I can see we are heading for an environmental nightmare in about twenty years time when the authorities realise they have a huge pile of highly unstable volatile Lithium Ion batteries that get very angry if they get wet, imagine the fly tipping scenarios in years to come...

    Not the current 'authorities' problem at the moment though, the current mob, by then, will be happily retired to their country piles. They pay lip service to the problem, convince the majority electric / hybrid is the future and kick the can further down the road, knowing Johnny taxpayer can pick up the bill .
