Summary of Complaint

MY 16 BOUGHT A CAR FROM BOMMARITO VW HAZELWOOD, THEY TOLD US IT HAD PRIOR ENGINE WORK AND THE CUSTOMER COULDN'T PAY FOR THE CHARGES SO THEY SOLD US THE CAR. WHEN TEST DRIVING WE HEARD A CLUNK EVERY TIME YOU WOULD EXCEL. THE SALESMAN SAID IT WAS STUFF IN THE TRUNK. COME TO FIND OUT THERE ARE NO MOTOR MOUNTS HOLDING THE MOTOR AND THE MOTOR GOES UP IN THE AIR WHEN YOU GIVE THE CAR GAS, THE MOTOR HIT THE EXHAUST AND BROKE IT. THERE IS NO WAY THIS CAR PASSED INSPECTION WITH A MOTOR HANGING THERE, YOU CAN'T SEE THROUGH THE BACK WINDOW BECAUSE THE TINT IS SO BAD. A DEALERSHIP SHOULD NOT OF SOLD A VEHICLE WITH A MOTOR LIKE THIS, IT'S A BIT DANGEROUS TO PUT A YOUNG GIRL IN. IT HAS TAKEN ME TWO WEEKS FOR SOMEONE TO CALL ME BACK. *TR

VIN: WVWJK73C67P****

Summary of Complaint

THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION DOES NOT WANT TO DOWNSHIFT. PER THE MANUFACTURER INSTRUCTIONS/OWNER MANUAL WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS NEW, THE OIL CHANGE FOR THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WAS NOT RECOMMENDED IN CONTRARY. THAT CHANGE IN FEW YEARS IN VW BOOKS BUT THE CONSUMERS WHERE NEVER INFORMED ABOUT IT. THE ISSUE STARTED WHEN THE VEHICLE HAD ABOUT 74000 MILES BUT IT WAS PAST THE NUMBER OF YEARS FOR THE POWER-TRAIN WARRANTY (PROBABLY 8 OR MORE). THE ISSUE HAPPENS WHEN A BRISK ACCELERATION OR GOING UPHILL AND MAINTAINING SPEED IS REQUIRED. WHEN ACCELERATING THE TRANSMISSION SHOULD DOWN SHIFT TWO GEARS FROM SIXTH TO FOURTH FOR EXAMPLE, THE TRANSMISSION BOGS DOWN AND THE WHOLE CAR SHAKES VIOLENTLY AND LOSSES SPEED. I'VE TRIED TO FIX THE ISSUE BY CHANGING THE TRANSMISSION OIL AT THE DEALER AND THAT WAS WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT THEY REVERS COURSE ON CHANGING FLUID FOR THE AUTOMATIC, HOWEVER THAT DID NOT FIX THE ISSUE AND VW DID NOT WANT TO FIX IT OR TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ISSUE.

Summary of Complaint

ON A TUESDAY OR WEDNESDAY IN EARLY JUNE 2017, I WAS ACCELERATING FROM ABOUT 20 MILES/H TO 40 MILES/HOUR ON BRADDOCK ROAD EASTBOUND WHILE ON ITS BRIDGE CROSSING THE CAPITAL BELTWAY (I-495 IN VA) WHEN THE VEHICLE SUDDENLY JOLTED FORWARD. NO OTHER INDICATORS WENT ON AT THE TIME, BUT THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ILLUMINATED THE NEXT TIME I STARTED THE VEHICLE. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO VW OF FREDERICKSBURG (VA) FOR DIAGNOSIS AND REPAIR. AT THE TIME, IT WAS ON ITS FIRST REPLACEMENT LOW PRESSURE FUEL PUMP/CONTROL MODULE SET THAT WAS INSTALLED AT PRIORITY VW OF CHESTER, VA, IN LATE SEPTEMBER 2014. REPLICATION OF THE JUNE 2017 PROBLEM TOOK JUST A DAY IN THE SHOP, BUT DIAGNOSING THE CORE ISSUE AND REPLACING THE ASSOCIATED PARTS TOOK ANOTHER 5 WEEKS. THE FUEL PUMP AND CONTROL MODULE HAD TO BE REPLACED UNDER ANOTHER RECALL, PLUS A PORTION OF THE 1ST REPLACEMENT FUEL PUMP LODGED IN THE FUEL LINE RUNNING FROM THE FUEL TANK TO THE ENGINE. THAT REQUIRED REPLACEMENT OF SEVERAL FUEL LINES AND ASSOCIATED FUEL SYSTEM COMPONENTS. THE RELEVANT PORTION OF THE FINAL BILL TOTALED OVER $2000. THE $470 PORTION COVERING THE LOW PRESSURE FUEL PUMP AND ITS CONTROL MODULE WERE TAKEN CARE OF BY VW OF AMERICA, BUT THE $1500-1600 PORTION COVERING THE REST OF THE FUELING SYSTEM WAS NOT.

Summary of Complaint

THE WELD BEADS ON THE DOWN PIPE FLANGE ADJACENT TO THE TURBO CHARGER FAILED AND RESULTED IN A HUGE EXHAUST LEAK. THE HEAT (COMING OUT FROM THE OPENING) GOT TRAPPED IN THE ENGINE BAY AND MELTED THE VACUUM HOSE CONNECTED WITH THE BRAKE BOOSTER. AS A RESULT, POWER DECREASED BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, BREAKING POWER WAS LOST AS WELL. THIS HAPPENED WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS IN MOTION. LUCKILY, I WAS NOT DRIVING FAST AND JUST EXITED THE HIGHWAY. VERY DANGEROUS AND THE DEFECT ON THIS MODEL IS ACTUALLY NOT UNCOMMON. LOW QUALITY FACTORY WELDS ON THE COMPONENTS SHOULD BE RE-WELDED AND THE CHEAP HARD PLASTIC HOSES SHOULD BE REPLACED WITH BETTER QUALITY AND MORE RELIABLE HOSES.
