Summary of Complaint

I'VE ALREADY SPOKEN WITH VW OF AMERICA, AND THE DEALERSHIP MY HUSBAND AND I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE FROM. BUT YESTERDAY 03/17/2016 AT APPROX 420AM MY HUSBAND WAS DRIVING THE GTI TO WORK. IT WAS POURING DOWN RAIN AND MADE IT VERY DIFFICULT TO SEE. A TXDOT LIGHT POLE FELL ON THE HIGHWAY AND MY HUSBAND HAD NO TIME TO STOP UNTIL HE WAS JUST ABOUT TO HIT IT. AFTER HITTING THE LIGHT POLE HE WENT AIR BORN, LANDED ON ALL 4 TIRES AND FISH TAILED. AFTER HE TRIED TO REGAIN CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE, IT FLIPPED TO THE PASSENGER SIDE AND ROLLED TO THE ROOF, WHEN THE VEHICLE CAME TO A STOP IT WAS ON THE DRIVER SIDE. HE WAS GOING ABOUT 30-40 MPH IF THAT. WHAT BLOWS MY MIND IS THE MINUTE THE VEHICLE FLIPPED AND LANDED ON THE PASSENGER SIDE WHICH CRUSHED THE DOORS AND FRAME NEAR WINDSHIELD. THE AIR BAGS NEVER DEPLOYED. NOT SIDE, NOT FRONT. NOTHING. HE WALKED AWAY AFTER CRAWLING OUT THE SUNROOF. BUT HIS HANDS ARE CUT UP AND HE IS EXTREMELY SORE ON THE RIGHT SIDE. BUT THE AIR BAGS NEVER DEPLOYED. AND MIND YOU THE RADIATOR AND INTERCOOLER FELL OUT AFTER HE HIT THE POLE AND LANDED!!!!!!

Summary of Complaint

PASSENGER SIDE HEADLIGHT (PLEASE SEE ATTACHED PHOTO "HEADLIGHT.JPG"): THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED FOR THE FIRST TIME THE DAY WE BOUGHT THE CAR, RIGHT AFTER WE PULLED OUT OF YOUR LOT. WE PULLED RIGHT BACK IN AFTER CIRCLING THE BLOCK, BUT AFTER LEORE TURNED THE ENGINE OFF AND ON AGAIN EVERYTHING WAS FINE THEN. I HAVE NOT FOUND A WAY TO DUPLICATE THIS. IT SEEMS TO HAPPEN RANDOMLY, BUT USUALLY WITHIN THE FIRST MINUTE OR SO OF DRIVING. THERE ALWAYS SEEMS TO BUT BE A BRIGHT FLASH FROM WHICH ONE OF THE LIGHTS DOES NOT RECOVER. DASHBOARD MESSAGE: THIS ONE LOOKS LIKE IT MAY BE RELATED TO THE FIRST ISSUE (AGAIN, PLEASE SEE ATTACHED PHOTO NAMED "MESSAGE.JPG"): THE MESSAGE READING "FRONT RIGHT DIPPED BEAM NOT WORKING!" USUALLY DISPLAYS WITHIN THE FIRST FEW SECONDS AFTER STARTING THE ENGINE. I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND A WAY TO DUPLICATE THIS AT WILL. IT ALSO SEEMS TO RANDOMLY HAPPEN, BUT A LOT MORE OFTEN THAN THE FAILING HEADLIGHT UNDER ISSUE #1 DOES. THE PASSENGER DOOR POWER LOCK SEEMS TO WORK ONLY ON AND OFF. ALL OTHER LOCKS (I'M NOT POSITIVE ABOUT THE TRUNK ACTUALLY) SEEM TO WORK FINE. ALIGNMENT: THE VEHICLE PULLS TO THE LEFT ON THE FREEWAY. I BOUGHT A USED VEHICLE FROM STEVENS CREEK VOLKLSWAGEN THAT WAS UNSAFE WHICH WAS MY UNDERSTANDING IT WAS SAFE. I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO GET IT RESOLVED THROUGH THE DEALERSHIP AND MANUFACTURER BUT MAJORITY OF THE ABOVE LISTED ITEMS IN FIRST PARAGRAPH (I.E., TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR, SPEED, HEADLIGHT) ARE STILL UNRESOLVED.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING MY WAY TO WORK I PARKED THE CAR AND CAME OUT TO GO GRAB SOMETHING TO EAT. THE CAR WOULD NOT MOVE TILL I NOTICED MY GEARS WERE FLASHING ON AND OFF (P,R,N,D,S). I COULDNT GET INTO ANY GEARS AT ALL AND SO I CALLED A TOW TRUCK. THEY CAME OUT AND I GAVE THEM THE KEY TO TRY AND MOVE THE CAR. THEY WERE ABLE TO GET INTO GEARS BUT I TOLD THEM I DIDNT FEEL SAFE DRIVING IT SO I HAD THEM TOW IT HOME. THE NEXT DAY THE SAME THING HAPPENED INDEFINITELY. I DID NOT WANT TO PAY THE DEALER 5600 BUCKS TO FIX IT AS OTHER PEOPLE ARE HAVING THE SAME ISSUE. IM WAITING ON VW TO EITHER DO A RECALL OR SOME KIND OF RESEARCH TO FIX THIS PROBLEM. I ALSO CALLED VW AND THEY SAID THEY REPLACED THE MECHATRONIC UNIT FOR MY CAR ALREADY. BUT HOW WOULD IT FAIL AGAIN ALREADY? THERE WAS NO EXPLINATION THEREFORE I AM WAITING FOR A RESPONSE FROM VW OR GET A LETTER IN THE MAIL FOR A TOTAL RECALL.

Summary of Complaint

2007 VW GTI. DIRECT SHIFT GEAR (DSG) FAILURE AT 43,000 MILES. TRANSMISSION FAILURE OCCURRED WHILE SHIFTING INTO REVERSE. TRANSMISSION LOCKS IN EITHER "DRIVE" OR "NEUTRAL". "PARK" AND "REVERSE" ARE LOCKED OUT OF USE. CAR MUST BE LEFT IN "NEUTRAL" TO PARK AND DRIVER MUST UTILIZE EMERGENCY BRAKE SINCE "PARK" IS INOPERATIVE CREATING DANGEROUS CONDITION TO PARK VEHICLE. KEY CAN ONLY BE REMOVED BY DISCONNECTING THE BATTERY DUE TO TRANSMISSION INTERLOCK. VW EXCLUDED MY VIN RANGE FOR REPAIR / EXTENDED WARRANTY COVERAGE UNDER OTHER RECALLS OR NHTSA ACTIONS REGARDING THE DSG TRANSMISSION. VW DEALER ESTIMATES REPAIR TO COST $5,600. VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA CUSTOMER SERVICE DOES NOT BELIEVE THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE AND WILL NOT EXTEND WARRANTY TO COVER REPAIR COST.

Summary of Complaint

I LIVE IN CT AND WAS VISITING COUSINS IN NJ ON SATURDAY OCTOBER 25, 2014. I TAKE THE EXIT OF THE NEW JERSEY TURNPIKE AND STOP AT THE FIRST LIGHT. I START TO GO AND THEN SEE THAT THE CAR WAS REVVING BUT NOT CHANGING GEARS. I SEE THE PRNDS LIGHTS ON THE DASH FLASH SIMULTANEOUSLY NON STOP. I JUST BARELY PULL OFF TO THE NEAREST PARKING LOT SINCE THERE WAS NO SHOULDER ON THE 50 MPH ROAD. I STOP THE CAR AND PUT IT IN PARK AND THE CAR DID NOT SHIFT OUT OF PARK AFTER THAT. THE NEAREST DEALER HAD JUST CLOSED AND THEY SAID TO WAIT UNTIL MONDAY! I CALLED MY COUSINS WHO STILL LIVED AN HOUR AWAY TO SEE IF THEY HAD AAA AND LUCKILY THEY DID. I THEN TOWED THE CAR HOME OVER 300 MILES! APPARENTLY THE MECHATRONICS UNIT DIED (THE BRAINS OF THE TRANSMISSION) WITHOUT ANY ERROR CODES OR WARNING. THERE SEEM TO BE QUITE A FEW COMPLAINTS ONLINE ABOUT THESE UNITS WITH SOME FAILING WHILE PEOPLE ARE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY!! I GUESS I SHOULD CONSIDER MYSELF 'LUCKY' THAT IT DIED WHEN IT DID?! VW DEALER CHARGED ME OVER $2400 TO REPLACE IT. WHAT'S EVEN WORSE IS THAT THEY ONLY WARRANT THE NEW PART FOR 12 MONTHS/12,000 MILES SO I GUESS I BETTER NOT TAKE ANY LONG TRIPS WITH THIS CAR. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING AS I DO 5 NIGHTS A WEEK TO WORK. TRAVELING ABOUT 55MPH WHEN SUDDENLY, MY GTI EQUIPPED WITH A DSG TRANSMISSION DOWNSHIFTED TO WHAT I BELIEVE WAS 1ST GEAR. THE REVS SUDDENLY WERE VERY HIGH. THE VEHICLES SPEED SEEMED TO DRASTICALLY LOWER TO 20MPH. I WAS ALMOST HIT BY MULTIPLE CARS BEHIND ME. LUCKILY I WAS ABLE TO LEAVE THE MIDDLE LANE AND GET ON THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY SAFELY. ONCE I PULLED TO THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY, MY PRNDS ON THE DASH WERE FLASHING. I TURNED THE CAR OVER AND STILL FLASHING. I CHECKED EVERY GEAR AND ON DRIVE I WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT HOME SLOWLY. IT SEEMED THAT THE TRANSMISSION ONLY RAN ON 1ST GEAR. REVERSE GEAR IS COMPLETELY GONE. I CAN'T EVEN PROPERLY PARALLEL PARK MY CAR ANY MORE. VW SEEMS TO BE COVERING SOME MODEL YEAR DSG CARS. I HAVE READ SOME PLACES THAT 2008-2010 YEARS ARE COVERED, AND SOME PLACES WHERE FEBRUARY 2007 - 2010 PRODUCTION YEARS ARE COVERED. MINE IS A PRODUCTION YEAR OF JANUARY 2007. THIS DSG ISSUE IS WELL KNOWN FOR ALL YEARS. IT IS KNOWS AS THE "FLASH OF DEATH" OR FLASHING PRNDS. GOOGLE DSG FLASH OF DEATH AND THERE WILL BE MANY LINKS LINKED TO THIS ISSUE. I AM A HUGE VW FAN. I OWN A 2006 GLI 6 SPEED MANUAL AND THIS 2007 GTI WITH DSG TRANSMISSION. MY FATHER OWNS A 99 JETTA AND MY BROTHER AND SISTER BOTH OWN 2007 PASSATS. VWOA SHOULD KNOW THIS IS A HUGE SAFETY ISSUE, THEY SHOULD KNOW THAT THIS IS A KNOWN DSG DEFECT FOR ALL YEARS AND COVER ANY ISSUES RELATING TO IT. I HAVE DONE THE DSG SERVICE TWICE. I CALLED VWOA AND THEY SAID MY CAR HAS NO RECALLS RELATING TO THE DSG. I HAVE SCANNED THE CAR AND HAVE COME UP WITH THESE CODES, P0751= SHIFT SOLENOID 1 (N88). P1746= TRANS. SOLENOID POWER RELAY AND P2723 = PRESSURE CONTROL SOLENOID 5. VW HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN A FAILURE TO YOUR TRANSMISSION WITH NO WARNINGS? WHAT IF I GOT INTO AN ACCIDENT AND SOMEONE OR MY SELF WAS SERIOUSLY INJURED BECAUSE OF A MANUFACTURER DEFECT? *JS

Summary of Complaint

I OWN A 2007 VW GTI WITH MECHATRONIC DSG. I WAS IN AN INTERSECTION WHEN THE TRANSMISSION SLIPPED ACTING LIKE IT WAS IN NEUTRAL BUT THE PNRDS WAS FLASHING. THE CAR HAD NO ACCELERATION OR RPM'S. TRAFFIC WAS DOGGING ME AND 15 CARS ALMOST HIT ME DUE TO THIS FAULTY TRANSMISSION INCIDENT. I CALLED VW OF AMERICA AND THEY INFORMED ME MY CAR IS OUT OF WARRANTY. ALSO THEY INFORMED ME THAT MY YEAR MAKE AND MODEL HAS NO RECALL OR PROBLEMS WITH THE DSG TRANSMISSION. VW OF AMERICA SAID SINCE MY CAR IS NOT A CERTIFIED VW FROM THEIR DEALERS IT ISN'T COVERED FOR A RECALL OR FACTORY WARRANTY. I FEEL COMPLETELY UNSAFE AND UN SATISFIED HOW THE REGIONAL MANGER OF SAFETY FROM VW OF AMERICA HANDLED THIS SITUATION. SHE WAS NOT FRIENDLY OR UNDERSTANDING AT ALL. *TR
