Summary of Complaint

DRIVING A 2012 VW CC WITH 57,000 MILES. DRIVING ON HIGHWAY AT 70 MPH AND ATTEMPTED TO PASS A SLOW MOVING TRUCK. ACCELERATED QUICKLY AND MID PASS THE ENGINE LOST POWER AND IMMEDIATELY WENT INTO "LIMP MODE" WITH ECR LIGHT ACTIVATED ON THE DASH. PULLED OVER SAFELY AND TURNED OFF THE ENGINE. AFTER COLLECTING MYSELF, I STARTED ENGINE TO DRIVE OFF HIGHWAY. CAR WOULD NOT START. I SAT A FEW MOMENTS IN PANIC AND TRIED AGAIN. THE CAR STARTED AND I DROVE WITH ECR LIGHT ON TO NEXT EXIT. THE CAR WAS SLUGGISH WITH LITTLE ACCELERATION. PULLED TO GAS STATION AND TURNED OFF AGAIN. RESTARTED AND THE ENGINE RPMS RAN HIGHER IN IDLE SO I TURNED OFF THE CAR AGAIN. LET IT SIT AND RESTARTED AND DROVE TO AUTO ZONE WHERE THEY DID A CODE TESTER AND WAS TOLD P0229 UNDERBOOST TURBOCHARGER WAS ISSUE. AUTO ZONE EMPLOYEE SAID HE HAD SEEN IT MANY TIMES AND ITS A KNOWN ISSUE WITH 2.0 TURBO ENGINES IN VW AND AUDI. THE REPORT IS ATTACHED. AUTO ZONE RESET THE ECR LIGHT AND THE CAR WAS DRIVEN TO FINAL DESTINATION INTO ARIZONA WITH NO ADDITIONAL ISSUES YET. RESEARCHING I FOUND THE FOLLOWING LINK HTTPS://WWW.CARGURUS.COM/CARS/DISCUSSION-T23523_DS493841. THIS LINK EXPRESSES THE OPINIONS OF MANY DRIVERS OVER THE YEARS EXPERIENCING THIS ISSUE AND HOW UNSAFE AND DIFFICULT TO IS TO RESOLVE WITH MANY FOLKS EXPERIENCING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN REPAIRS AND NEVER FINDING A REMEDY. I AM WORRIED AND SHOCKED THAT THE CAR ENGINE CAN BE TURNED OFF BY A COMPUTER WITH NO BYPASS FOR THE DRIVER. EXTREMELY DANGEROUS WHILE DRIVING.

Summary of Complaint

THE VEHICLE IN QUESTION HAS HAD OVER TWO YEARS OF UNRESOLVED ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS. THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN REPEATEDLY RETURN TO THE DEALERSHIP ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT WHAT IT WAS THERE FOR NOT TO BE THE PROBLEM BUT OTHER THINGS HAVE BEEN FOUND AND THATS THE PROBLEM. AFTER PAYING FOR THAT REPAIR ONLY TO BRING IT BACK FOR THE ORIGINAL COMPLAINT. THIS IS THE PATTERN WITH THE ENGINE LEAKING OIL AND THE LEAK NEVER FOUND TO THE CAR NOT GOING ABOVE 10 MPH. WTHIN THE LAST 5 MONTHS THE CAR HAS BEEN IN THE SHOP FOR THE SAME ISSUE OF NO POWER AND RATTLING SHAKING TRANSMISSION. THREE TO FOUR WEEKS AT A TIME. IN THE PAST THE CAR HAS BEEN RETURNED TO THE DEALERSHIP ONCE A WEEK FOR THE OIL TO BE CHECK AND FILLED TO SPECS . ALSO WITHIN THE PAST TWO YEARS THE ENTIRE ENGINE HAS BEEN WORKED ON BY THE DEALERSHIP AND THE TRANSMISSION WAS BLOWN UP BY A TECHNICIAN BEING CARELESS IN MAKING A REPAIR. IN REPAIR ORDERS I HAVE THE MAJOR WORK THAT HAS BEEN DONE ON THIS VEHICLE.IN TALKING TO THE DEALERSHIP AND VOLKSWAGEN THE ONLY THING THATS BEING SAID THAT THE CAR IS TOO FAR OUT OF WARRANTY. THE ISSUE THAT GENERATES THIS COMPLAINT IS THAT NOW VOLKSWAGEN DEALERSHIP HAS THE CAR AND IT NEEDS A ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION AND WANTS BETWEEN $8,000-$11,000. THIS IS A MAJOR PROBLEM BECAUSE OF THE ISSUE THAT HAVE BEEN HAVING OVER THE PERIOD OF TIME. THE CONSUMER SHOULD NOT BE CARRYING THE BURDEN OF THIS TYPE OF REPAIR BECAUSE OF THE HISTORY OF THE CARS IN QUESTION (WHICH IS THE VOLKSWAGEN 2012 CC). ALL OF THE PROBLEMS HAVE OCCURRED WHILE THE CAR WAS IN MOTION. THE EVENTS WITH THIS CAR STARTED IN THE YEAR 2016 AND THE PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN CONSTANT EVRY SINCE UP UNTIL THIS CURRENT DATE.

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALI I ASKED BOARDWALK VOLKSWAGEN(1 BAIR ISLAND RD, REDWOOD CITY, CA 94063) TO HELP ME TO ADDRESS TAKATA RECALL. HOWEVER, THEY JUST SAY THEY DO NOT HAVE RELATED PARTS, AND DO NOT RESPONSE ME AGAIN. IT SEEMS THAT THEY WON'T HELP TO ADDRESS THE TAKATA RECALL, WHICH IS A VERY SEVERE RECALL. I FEEL VERY DISAPPOINTED ABOUT THEIR RESPONSES.

Summary of Complaint

WHEN VEHICLE IS IN MOTION THERE HAS BEEN MULTIPLE TIMES I CAME CLOSE TO GETTING IN AN ACCIDENT DUE TO BEING UNABLE TO USE MY HORN. MY HORN AND CONTROLS NOT WORK DUE TO THE CLOCK SPRING HARNESS. THE VW CLOCK SPRING WARRANTY WILL NOT COVER THE FIX DUE TO MY AIRBAG LIGHT NOT BEING ON YET. MY HORN NOT WORKING ALONE IS A SAFETY ISSUE AND THEY REFUSE TO SEE IT THAT WAY.

Summary of Complaint

MY 2012 VW CC IS IN THE SHOP AS I WRITE THIS AS IT HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED WITH A DEFECTIVE TIMING CHAIN/TENSIONER. IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE MY ENGINE HAD CATASTROPHIC FAILURE LIKE THE HUNDREDS OF OTHERS VW HAS ACKNOWLEDGED. MY MODEL IS LISTED ON THE RELATED VW SETTLEMENT SITE AS PART OF THE AFFECTED MODELS BUT YET MY VIN HAS BEEN APPARENTLY LEFT OUT OF THE SETTLEMENT SO I HAVE TO PAY ON MY OWN. NO ONE CAN EXPLAIN TO ME WHY MY CAR IS BEING EXCLUDED WHEN IT HAS THE PROBLEM PARTS VW HAS CONCEDED TO. I THINK VW DELIBERATELY TAMPERED WITH THE NUMBERS OF THE VEHICLES AFFECTED TO CUT DOWN ON SETTLEMENT COSTS

Summary of Complaint

THE CAR HAS 50,000 MILES ON IT AND ONE DAY I STARTED THE CAR IN THE MORNING AND IT WAS QUITE AS IT SHOULD BE THEN IT STARTED IT TO MISFIRING AND START TO SHUT OFF. I TOOK IT TO THE MECHANIC AND THE DEALER, THEY BOTH CONFIRMED THAT THE TIMING BELT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AND I SHOULDN'T BE STARTING THE CAR UNTIL I GET IT FIXED. I CAN NOT BELIEVE THAT THIS MAJOR PROBLEM WILL OCCUR ON A CAR THAT HAS A LOW MILEAGE LIKE MINE.

Summary of Complaint

HOOD LATCH PREVENTS HOOD FROM OPENING. VW KNOWS THIS PROBLEM IS A MANUFACTURING DEFECT AND THEY REFUSE TO REPAIR IT WITHOUT A CHARGE OF $250 INCLUDING THE PART. THE COOLING SYSTEM HAS A ERROR LIGHT GLOWING WHEN THERE IS NO PROBLEM. THE WARNING SYSTEM SHOWS VARIOUS PARTS AS MALFUNCTRONING BUT APPEARS THE DIAGNOSTIC MODULE IS AT FAULT.
