Do enough people know about the dangers of getting the Volkswagen emissions fix?

My Volkswagen Golf 1.6 TDI has been back in the Volkswagen garage for 4 days following starting problems immediately after the emissions fix was done. The fault does not show up on their computer analysis system and they are liaising with HO to try to rectify the fault. An Volkswagen Up loan car has been provided to me but the inconvenience is great. Do we need to be getting publicity over this so that other car owners are made aware and defer getting the "fix" until Volkswagen know what they are doing?

We've been telling people not to have the fix since September last year. We've made the recommendation hundreds of times, mostly for 2.0 TDIs in Tiguans. But ours is just one small voice. The 1.6 TDI recall only started this year. You own the most complained about car we have ever recorded. See:
