Summary of Complaint

On 05/21/2021 while merging onto the I-5 freeway in Olympia at high speed the EPC dash light came on and the car lost all acceleration and had to swerve off onto the shoulder to avoid any collision (felt like car had stalled). Luckily it was in early AM so traffic was not as bad as normal. Once on the shoulder the car would not move. Contacted Geico and had car towed into the closest Volkswagon service center once they opened. After the inspection (05/24/2021) was told that the mechatronic unit had failed and there were metal shards throughout the transmission that couldn't be removed, so the entire transmission would need to be replaced. There was no warning of the failure; there was a check engine light on previously for a different mechanical issue (vacuum pump) that began 03/10/2021. At that time the car was closely inspected at a VW dealership and I was told safe to drive until I could get it repaired (just hybrid system would no longer function). At that time they updated some software on the car for a separate recall (38C4). The car has been inspected by two separate Volkswagon service centers, Volkswagon of Olympia (where the car is currently for the transmission failure), and back on 03/10/2021 at the Burlington WA Volkswagon dealership. Researched the issue and this particular model and production year had been recalled under #34F6, however for whatever reason my VIN number was not included in the recall. I believe this car should have been included in that recall.

THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS AND I SEE THERE IS A RECALL AND NO FIX IS AVAILABLE BUT THE HYBRID SYSTEM SHUTS COMPLETELY DOWN WHEN IT DOES THIS AND I CANNOT DO ANYTHING WITH THE VEHICLE AT THAT TIME. IT WILL HAPPEN ANYWHERE I AM WHERE IT'S A BACK ROAD OR ON THE INTERSTATE.I FEEL THAT VOLKSWAGEN SHOULD TAKE BACK THIS VEH BECAUSE OF THE FAULTY SYSTEM. I FEEL VOLKSWAGEN SHOULD PAY MY LOAN OFF SO I CAN GET IN TO ANOTHER SAFER VEHICLE.

Summary of Complaint

DURING NORMAL AROUND-TOWN OPERATION THE VEHICLE (2013 JETTA HYBRID) EXPERIENCED A TEMPORARY LOSS OF DRIVE POWER. IT FELT LIKE THE CLUTCH SLIPPED OR BECAME DISENGAGED MOMENTARILY (3 SECONDS). THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT DISPLAYED. WE IMMEDIATELY DROVE IT TO A REPAIR SHOP THAT WAS LESS THAN A MILE AWAY. AFTER READING OUT A DIAGNOSTIC ERROR CODE (P0841 - TRANSMISSION FLUID PRESSURE) AND NOTING THAT THE TRANSMISSION FLUID WAS DARK AND CONTAMINATED WITH A BURNT SMELL, THE INITIAL SHOP DECIDED THE REPAIR WAS BEYOND THEIR ABILITY AS IT SEEMED TO BE RELATED TO THE TRANSMISSION PRESSURE SENSOR SWITCH WHICH IS EMBEDDED INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION CASE UNDER 600 PSI PRESSURE. THE CAR WAS DRIVEN WITHOUT INCIDENCE A FEW MILES (5) TO THE LOCAL DEALER, WHERE FURTHER DIAGNOSTICS TOOK PLACE. THEY UNCOVERED 2 ADDITIONAL ERROR CODES (P1806- FUNCTION RESTRICTION DUE TO PRESSURE DROP) AND (P17713 - CLUTCH TOLERANCE). AFTER A FEW DAYS OF INTERNAL DEBATE AT VW (I BELIEVE THEY CONTACTED THE CHIEF ENGINEER OR GURU FOR THAT PARTICULAR UNIT), THE DEALER CAME BACK WITH THE PROGNOSIS THAT THE ENTIRE TRANSMISSION NEEDS REPLACEMENT AT THE COST OF ABOUT $9000. IN THE WEEKS PREVIOUS TO THIS EPISODE, WE HAD NOTICED WHAT FELT LIKE A MILD SLIPPING OF THE CLUTCH, BUT NEVER A FULL LOSS OF POWER AND NO CHECK-ENGINE LIGHT. THE PROBLEMS WE ARE EXPERIENCING SOUND IDENTICAL TO THOSE REPORTED IN NHTSA SAFETY RECALL 19V866000 (VW'S NUMBER FOR THIS RECALL IS 34J6), WHICH STATES 'HAIRLINE CRACKS CAN DEVELOP WITHIN THE TRANSMISSION ELECTRONIC GEARBOX (MECHATRONIC UNIT), CAUSING AN INTERNAL TRANSMISSION OIL LEAK AND A DECREASE IN OIL PRESSURE. A DECREASE IN TRANSMISSION OIL PRESSURE CAN CAUSE THE CLUTCH TO FAIL TO ENGAGE, RESULTING IN A SUDDEN LOSS OF DRIVE POWER, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.' IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE CURRENT RECALL PERHAPS NEEDS TO BE MORE INCLUSIVE. THIS CAR IS 8 YEARS OLD, BUT ONLY HAS 47K MILES.

Summary of Complaint

INTAKE MANIFOLD LIMITED WARRANTY EXTENSION NUMBER VWP-20-03. THIS WARRANTY EXTENSION IS FOR CERTAIN 2015 MODEL YEAR VOLKSWAGEN TIGUAN, CC AND EOS WITH ENGINE CODES CBFA AND CCTA. I HAVE A 2013 VW JETTA GLI WITH AN ENGINE CODE OF CCTA THAT IS EXPERIENCING THE SAME MANIFOLD FAILURES AS THE ABOVE MENTIONED BULLETIN. I HAVE CALLED VW AND THEY STATE MY CAR WOULD NOT BE INCLUDED IN THIS EXTENDED WARRANTY. AFTER DOING MUCH RESEARCH ON THE VW FORUM, THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM FOR SEVERAL YEAR, MAKES AND MODELS CONCERNING THE FAULTY INTAKE MANIFOLD RUNNER FLAP THAT PLAGUES SO MANY THOUSANDS OF GEN1 2.0T TSI ENGINES. THE LINKAGE WITHIN THE INTAKE MANIFOLD RUNNER FLAP THAT CONNECTS TO THE VACUUM ACTUATED ARM CAN BREAK AT IT'S DRIVE HEX, AND ALLOWS THE LEVER ARM TO "POP" OUT OF THE INTAKE MANIFOLD, SOMETIMES CREATING A MASSIVE AIR LEAK WHILE BECOMING DISCONNECTED FROM THE DRIVE HEX. BY SIMPLY PUSHING THE LEVER ARM BACK INTO THE INTAKE MANIFOLD, THE DRIVE HEX RECONNECTS TO THE LINKAGE AND WILL OPERATE THE TUMBLE FLAPS BUT IT WILL CONTINUE TO BLOW OPEN AGAIN ONCE UNDER BOOST, CREATING A MASSIVE AIR LEAK. THIS FAILURE EVENT IS SO COMMON THAT AFTERMARKET PARTS MANUFACTURERS HAVE DESIGNED A FIX/PREVENTION KIT TO THE COMMON FAULTY INTAKE MANIFOLD RUNNER FLAP LINKAGE. PREVIOUSLY THE ONLY REPAIR WAS TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE INTAKE MANIFOLD, COSTING HUNDREDS IN PARTS AND LABOR. VW NEEDS TO PERFORM FURTHER CONTAINMENT ACTIONS THAT IDENTIFIES OTHER MODELS AND YEARS THAT ARE AFFECTED BY THE FACTORY INSTALLED FAULTY MANIFOLD AND THEY SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE TO BEAR THE BURDEN OF THE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS COMMON ISSUE BY WAY OF EXTENDING THE MANIFOLD WARRANTY TO OTHER MAKES SUCH AS GOLF (V, VI), JETTA (V, VI,) AND PASSAT B6.

Summary of Complaint

10/21/2020 - I WAS DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY IN STOP & GO TRAFFIC WHEN I WENT TO GO AGAIN THE CAR JUST REVVED BUT DID NOT GO UNDER POWER. THE HYBRID LIGHT CAME ON & THE GEAR INDICATOR STARTED TO FLASH. I WAS ABLE TO PULL TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD SAFELY & TRIED TO PUT IT IN REVERSE & ALSO TRIED TO USE THE MANUAL SHIFTING OPTION TO SEE IF THAT WOULD WORK, AGAIN NO MOVEMENT. HAD IT TOWED TO A LOCAL SHOP THAT WORKS ON VOLKSWAGENS & AUDIS. UPON UNLOADING THE VEHICLE OFF OF THE TOW TRUCK I NOTICED FRESH FLUID ON THE BED OF THE TRUCK TOWARD THE DRIVERS SIDE FRONT. I DID NOT THINK ANYTHING OF IT BECAUSE WHEN I PULLED OFF OF THE FREEWAY I DID NOT SEE ANY FLUIDS LEAKING FROM THE VEHICLE. 10/22/2020 - THE SHOP PULLED A CODE THAT INDICATED LOW PRESSURE IN THE TRANSMISSION. HE MENTIONED A RECALL THAT CAME UP OF 34J6. I TOLD THEM THAT AFTER DROPPING THE VEHICLE THE NIGHT BEFORE THAT I LIFTED THE HOOD AND SAW WHAT LOOKED LIKE SOME SORT OF FLUID SPRAY NEAR THE DRIVERS SIDE FRONT. I CALLED VW CARE HOTLINE AND ASKED ABOUT 34J6 RECALL, MY CAR IS NOT PART OF THAT RECALL 10/26/2020 - THE SHOP CALLED TO LET ME KNOW THAT THEY DID A VISUAL INSPECTION & THEY FOUND THE COVER FOR THE MECHATRONIC UNIT LIFTED OFF AND EVEN PULLED OVER 2 BOLTS THAT HOLD IT ONTO THE TRANSMISSION. HE SAID BASED ON THAT HE MENTIONED RECALL 34J6 & THAT A VW DEALER SHOULD DO THE WORK. HAD THE CAR TOWED TO HANSEL VW IN SANTA ROSA, CA. MET THE CAR AT THE DEALERSHIP TO HAVE THEM WRITE A DIAGNOSIS WORK ORDER, ROUGHLY UP TO $400 TO DIAGNOSE WHAT HAPPENED 10/28/2020 - HANSEL'S SERVICE ADVISOR CALLED TO LET ME KNOW THAT THE COVER OF THE M.U. HAD PULLED AWAY & THAT SOMETHING INTERNAL HAPPENED. THE ADVISOR OR THE TECHNICICAN CALLED VW AMERICA TO INQUIRE ABOUT REPLACING THE M.U. ONLY TO BE TOLD IT WOULD REQUIRE A FULL TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENT. WAITING ON AN ESTIMATE FROM THEM ON A NEW TRANSMISSION.

Summary of Complaint

I STARTED MY CAR WITH NO ISSUE BUT WHEN IT WAS PUT INTO REVERSE IT BEGAN MAKING A HORRIBLE CLUNKING/GRINDING NOISE THEN SHUT OFF AND COULD NOT START AFTER. TO BE CLEAR: THE CAR WAS IN MOTION BEFORE MAKING THE NOISE AND SHUTTING DOWN, BUT HAD NOT GONE FAR BEFORE DYING. I DID NOT MAKE IT OUT OF THE PARKING LOT. IT HADN'T HAD ANY ISSUES AT ALL BEFORE THIS AND HAS ALWAYS HAD IT'S MAINTENANCE TAKEN CARE OF ON TIME. WE TOOK IT TO A VW DEALERSHIP TO HAVE IT CHECKED AND IT TURNED OUT THAT THE ENTIRE TRANSMISSION NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. WE HAD IT REPLACED AND IT SEEMED TO BE RUNNING OKAY, BUT AS SOON AS WE TOOK IT HOME IT WOULDN'T START UP AGAIN. WE ONCE AGAIN TOOK IT TO A DEALERSHIP AND FOUND THAT THE MECHATRONIC UNIT WAS ALSO BAD. WE HAD TAKEN IT IN TO HAVE IT CHECKED SINCE WE HEARD THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE MECHATRONIC UNITS IN SOME VW VEHICLES BUT WE'RE TOLD THAT IT DIDN'T APPLY TO OUR VIN NUMBER. I BELIEVE THAT THEY DID NOT INCLUDE A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT CARS IN THE RECALL THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN INCLUDED. I AM DEFINITELY NOT THE FIRST PERSON TO HAVE THIS HAPPEN AFTER BEING TOLD THAT THE RECALL DIDN'T APPLY TO THEIR CALL.

Summary of Complaint

THERE WAS A RECALL ISSUES IN DEC 2019 FOR REPLACEMENT OF A HOSE AND/OR MECHATRONIC UNIT. THERE IS NO REMEDY. MY CAR'S ELECTRIC MOTOR STOPPED WORKING. WHEN CLEARING THE ERROR CODES, MY CAR DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. WHEN CALLING VW, ADVISED THAT I CAN PUT IN A NEW TRANSMISSION AND IT WILL WORK. WHEN I ASKED WHY THAT ISN'T THE FIX TO THEIR RECALL, THEY SAID THEY DON'T KNOW YET. THEY ADVISED THAT IF I PUT IN MY OWN TRANSMISSION AND THEY DETERMINE A DIFFERENT PART IS NEEDED ANYWHERE IN THE PROCESS, THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COMPENSATE ME FOR THE RECALL. THE CAR HAS BEEN SITTING AT DIFFERENT SHOPS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A FIX SINCE JULY AND HAS BEEN UNDRIVEABLE SINCE AUG 17.

THERE IS AN ACTIVE RECALL ON OUR JETTA RELATED TO THE MICRO SWITCH. WHEN WE TOOK OUR CAR IN TO VOLKSWAGEN OF MARIETTA TO HAVE THE 90,000 MILE SERVICE DONE, WE STATED THAT WE WANTED THE RECALL REPAIR DONE AS WELL. THE SERVICE PROVIDER FIRST TOLD US HE COULDN'T LOOK UP THE RECALL BY THE VIN, AND THEN WHEN WE WENT TO PICK UP THE CAR, HE STATED THAT THERE WAS NO OPEN RECALL ON IT.

Summary of Complaint

RECALL 19V866000 "VOLKSWAGEN GROUP OF AMERICA, INC (VOLKSWAGEN) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2013-2014 JETTA HYBRID VEHICLES MANUFACTURED OCTOBER 2012 THROUGH OCTOBER 2013 AND EQUIPPED WITH A DQ-200 DIRECT-SHIFT GEARBOX. DUE TO GEARBOX FLUID ADDITIVES, THE CONTROL MODULE WITHIN THE GEARBOX MAY CORRODE. THE DEPOSITS FROM THIS CORROSION MAY CAUSE AN ELECTRICAL SHORT AND RESULT IN A STALL-LIKE CONDITION." MY 2013 VW JETTA HYBRID IS SHOWING THE SAME SYMPTOMS AS THIS RECALL. AT 125K MILES, I HAD TO LIMP IT INTO THE VW DEALERSHIP AFTER ONLY ODD GEARS WOULD ENGAGE. DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD OR TRYING TO GET ONTO THE HIGHWAY OR AT A COMPLETE STOP. THE TRANSMISSION WOULD LOOSE POWER AND THE CAR WOULD HAVE TO BE PULLED TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD TO BE SHUT DOWN AND RESTARTED MULTIPLE TIMES. THE DEALERSHIP IS UNABLE TO FIX THE TRANSMISSION AS WELL AS ANY OTHER TRANSMISSION SHOP BECAUSE VW DOES NOT SELL PARTS TO THE TRANSMISSION BECAUSE IT IS A "TRADE SECRET". A NEW TRANSMISSION IS $6000 AND BY THE BLOGS PEOPLE POST WITH THIS EXACT TROUBLE, THE TRANSMISSION DOES NOT LAST MORE THAN ~100K MILES.
