Summary of Complaint

MY AIRBAG LIGHT CAME ON FOR NO APPARENT CAUSE. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY REPLACED THE CLOCKSPRING CABLE AND SENT ME ON MY WAY. I WAS CHARGED OVER $400 FOR THIS. THAT SAME AFTERNOON THE LIGHT CAME ON AGAIN AND I TOOK IT BACK. AFTER 2 WEEKS THEY STILL HAVE MY CAR AND DON'T KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. I LOOKED UP INFORMATION ON YOUR SITE AND FOUND THAT OTHER JETTAS OF MY SAME YEAR HAD THIS PART UNDER RECALL. BUT WHEN I ASKED THE GUY AT THE GARAGE HE SAID MY CAR WAS NOT ON THE RECALL LIST. SO, I LOOKED ON YOUR SITE AGAIN AND SAW THAT 2012 JETTAS WERE IN FACT INCLUDED BUT IT DIDN'T APPEAR THAT MY SPECIFIC VIN NUMBER WAS INCLUDED. HOW CAN THIS BE POSSIBLE? I AM HAVING THE SAME TROUBLE WITH THE SAME PART AND DON'T FEEL I SHOULD HAVE PAID FOR THIS OR ANY FURTHER REPAIRS THAT MAY BE PENDING. MY QUESTION TO YOU IS, SHOULDN'T MY VIN NUMBER BE INCLUDED IN THIS RECALL?

WHEN STARTING MY 2012 VW JETTA, THE ABS LIGHT, BRAKE LIGHT, PASSENGER AIR BAG LIGHT COME ON ON THE DASHBOARD ALONG WITH A LONG BEEPING SOUND. THE SOUND EVENTUALLY STOPS BUT THE LIGHTS STAY ON. VEHICLE IS TRYING TO RUN THROUGH DIAGNOSTICS UPON STARTING (VEHICLE IS STATIONARY BUT LIGHTS REMAIN ON WHILE DRIVING) WHEN THESE LIGHTS COME ON. THE BRAKES ON THE VEHICLE ARE FINE AND DO NOT NEED TO BE SERVICED PER MECHANIC AND VW. PERSONAL MECHANIC ALONG WITH AUTHORIZED VW SERVICE PULLED THE FOLLOWING CODES: 01130 ABS OPERATION NOT A PLAUSIBLE SIGNAL, 01317 CONTROL MODULE, 01285 CLUSTER, 01486 SYSTEM FUNCTION TEST FAILURE. VEHICLE MILEAGE IS APPROXIMATELY 63K. ABS MODULE FAILURE HAS BEEN A KNOWN ISSUE WITH THESE VEHICLES AND THERE ARE TBS'S AND TECHNICAL TIPS FOR TROUBLESHOOTING AS WELL AS A RECALL FOR 2009-2010 JETTA'S. PROPERLY MAINTAINED VEHICLES SHOULD NOT REQUIRE ABS MODULE REPLACEMENTS AT 63K MILES. WAS ALSO TOLD THAT BY AUTHORIZED VW SERVICE THAT THIS VEHICLE ALSO HAS A LEAKY VACUUM PUMP. TOTAL COST OF REPAIRS: $2,636 FOR REPLACEMENT OF ABS MODULE PLUS TAX AND $1,036 PLUS TAX FOR REPLACEMENT OF THE VACUUM PUMP.
