Summary of Complaint

I ALSO SUFFER FROM MAJOR OIL LOSS IN MY 2014 JETTA SE 1.8. I HAD CODES POP UP TELLING ME TO REPLACE SOME SENSORS, AND TURNS OUT MY OIL WAS JUST VERY LOW. WITHIN THE FIRST MONTH I HAD THE VEHICLE, PURCHASED USED IN 2020, THE ENGINE WAS COMPLETELY DRY CAUSING ME TO QUESTION THE DEALERSHIP'S PROMISE THAT AN OIL CHANGE WASN'T DONE. I JUST REPLACED THE PCV VALVE, BUT NOW I'M GETTING P0301 AND P03AF CODES, AND MY CAR BARELY MADE IT TO WORK THIS MORNING. I HAD A SUCCESSFUL TEST DRIVE LAST NIGHT WITHOUT ANY ISSUES, BUT NOW I'M AFRAID TO DRIVE IT AT ALL WITHOUT PUTTING THE OLD VALVE BACK IN.

AVERAGE SPEED FOR OBSERVATION OF ISSUE IS UP TO 40-45 MPH. VW DEALER WITHHOLDS PARTS NUMBER INFORMATION FOR PARTS SPECIFIC TO MY VEHICLE.

TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS? ONCE MY CAR GOT UP TO 80,000 MILES WHEN IN TRAFFIC I TAKE MY FOOT OFF THE ACCELERATOR WHILE IN DRIVE AND THEN ACCELERATE SOMETIMES THERE'S A JERKING AS IF THE CAR DOESN'T KNOW WHAT GEAR TO BE IN. NORMALLY HAPPENS AT ANY SPEED TYPICALLY WHILE DRIVING SLOWING DOWN AND ACCELERATING. DATE WHEN IT STARTED I REALLY STARTED NOTICING IT IN JANUARY 2019. I ALSO NOTICED EXCESSIVE OIL CONSUMPTION AND WHEN OIL GETS LOW ON DIPSTICK NO LOW OIL LIGHT ON DASH. OIL GETS LOWER THAN DIPSTICK. DIPSTICK BECOMES DRY BUT NO SOUND DIFFERENCE IN ENGINE AND STILL RUNS NORMALLY.

Summary of Complaint

I COMPLAINED ABOUT THIS BACK IN MARCH AND OF COURSE THERE WAS NOTHING DONE. THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING ISSUE WITH VOLKSWAGEN ACCORDING TO ON LINE FORUMS. WE COULD NOT TURN OFF OUR CAR, THEY KEY WOULD NOT TURN IN THE IGNITION. I HAD TO PAY OVER THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS TO GET ANOTHER IGNITION FROM VOLKSWAGEN. HERE IT IS JUST FIVE MONTHS LATER AND WE ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM, AGAIN! ISN'T IT TIME TO DO SOMETHING AND MAKE VOLKSWAGEN ACCOUNTABLE, NOT ONLY ARE THE STOCK IGNITIONS DEFECTIVE, SO ARE THEIR REPLACEMENT IGNITIONS. PLEASE ORDER A RECALL AND MAKE THEM RESPONSIBLE. THIS IS OBVIOUSLY HAPPENING WHEN I COME TO A STOP, PLACE IN PARK AND ATTEMPT TO TURN OFF THE IGNITION, THE KEY DOES NOT MOVE.
