    2003 W8 Passat Heated Seat Switch went out

    I took my 2003 W8 Passat to the dealer to determine why my heated seats were not working. They found that both of the switches were bad. They want to charge me $200 total for replacing both switches. I have read that there is a recall on the heated seats for 2003 Passats, is this true if so how do I find out?
    I'm afraid if I ask the dealer they might lie bc they want me to pay so they can make more money.

    Yes, there was a recall, call another dealer. Give them your VIN. It can be any dealer.

    I called another dealer and ironically they said the switch had been replaced already in 2006, what are the chances that it just went out again lol

    It seems very odd that BOTH switches would fail (having been replaced in 2006?)
