Hi all,
I'm so glad that I found this forum for Taos specifically! My 2021 Taos ( lease) had a car rack last November and has been sitting in the shop since then! My insurance only covered 30 days of car rental. I’m really frustrated about it. The body shop said the parts ( radiator, fender liner and both headlamps) could potentially delivered in April. This is the third time they gave me an estimate delivery time. I called VW customer care number and got an email from regional case manager saying they are working on it, will update it in two weeks.
is it reasonable for me to ask a loaner car since I didn’t skip any payment(leasing) since the accident?
Anyone here had similar issues or having parts shortage issues?
I just hope to get my car back soon!!
thank you for reading my post.

They are so new there’s nothing available. It’s seemingly impossible to even find part numbers for anything. There is all this parts shortage bullshit to deal with too.

Welcome to the site!
It's not unreasonable to ask for a loaner, but since it's not a warranty issue it's probably not something VW will cover, but worth a shot! Good luck btw, and hope you get the parts soon, not a good time to be waiting that's for sure!

Hello!! I’m currently going through the same thing. Any luck with parts or loaner car? I haven’t had any 😢😢
No luck with loaner. Headlamps are the only parts missing now. One of VW dealers said there is a shipment coming but there are 40 back orders nationally. If you are looking for radiator, call 817-390-3763 Harrison .
they have some radiator.

I was in an accident in December with my 2 month old Taos. The struts and headlamp were missing. The headlamp came in shattered to bits...back to square 1. Finally got that in 1 month ago and still waiting for struts. I've been renting a car, can't get a loaner and VW Care keeps passing the buck. I have no idea how they can get away treating their consumers like this. It's beyond maddening.

This is alarming to read, one would think there's laws out there that say BEFORE a MFG sells a new vehicle model they have to FIRST have available replacement parts. I mean Headlights & Struts are as basic as you can get.

Hello,
I have a 2022 Taos S. It has been waiting on headlights since February. Still no eta or timeline and calling VW corporate was a complete waste of time. Not sure what else to do at this point. I get kinda peeved when they have new Taos at the dealer for sale, but they can't seem to find any headlights for mine.
