Volkswagen Engine Water Pump Settlement | VW Vortex

I also just got this form in the mail today. I actually got two for whatever reason. Maybe it’s because I own at 2005 Jetta but it’s not part of this. My 2018 GTI has just over 27K miles. And during a recent multi-point inspection the technician did mention he needed to slightly top off the coolant fluid. I’m hoping that I don’t need it replaced but when I put my VIN number into this site:
It says my Vehicle has been identified as part of this lawsuit. I just went out and checked and my fluid level is fine and the engine cooling system is currently working fine. I also watched this great video.

He said you need to take off the bottom splash guard to really see if it’s leaking. I’ll probably do this weekend to take a better look. I can’t believe how many times the OP had his replaced! That’s outrageous.
Also, in the video above he got a few different quotes from the Dealers and one quoted $1,520 for Part&Labor while the other one was only $794. Does anyone aside from the OP have the cost for parts&labor and what they ended up replacing? My car is completely stock so hopefully that helps prevent issues but not likely.
If/when I get this done should the manifold gasket also be done and anything else in this parts list? See “People Also Bought” WaterpumpThanks for any additional input. I’m hoping I don’t have to get this done but at least I should be able to get reimbursed. Someone else mentioned in another thread that VW refused the reimbursement because he didn’t have a 30K cooling system maintenance. I guess I better make sure I get the cooling system maintenance done in another 3K miles to make sure I can get reimbursed. I’m already loosing my butt on VWAPY stock and the market in general so this really SUCKS.
